COLLECTION OF DZHANSUGUROV POEMS

I loved you blindly and fully
On the golden beaches of Irtish
Perhaps, besides us, this whole world
Is empty - and coldness has descended
And only - "Darling I am yours forever!"
Irtish has heard through rapid breathing
And blood was boiling, heart fluttering insanely
Your face became ablaze with sweetest fires
My love, this life will never be enough!
And as we kissed, I uttered, come to me

~ Ilyas Dzhansugurov
