Sretena Anna Novic Poetry

1. Kingdom

2. Let my ashes be returned to the moon

3. Step by step of motion

4. On some staircase

5. Does the old age starts when we stop dreaming?

6. My prayer is a swanlike winged dog

7. A life passes by in front of me

8. Who is going to judge

9. I live in an armor of fear

10. In the mirror of life nothing is clear

11. I empower you to build a world and take a new road

12. If I ever die

13. Everything has its time and hour

14. A Wall

15. Awakening

16. If you don’t wake up one day you’ll be sorry

17. My painful heart is cracked long ago

18. When the shadow of the last resurrection


If I ever die

If I ever die,
let fragrant jasmine rest
on my grave.

Let white jasmine
full of blossoms spread,
and intoxicate with its fragrance.

If I go, and if my soul
stays on this side for some time,
don’t fear of my shadow, of my eyes at night.

I’ll protect, I’ll defend you from evil.
I’ll say good-bye to you,
when I’m ready.

If I go without a word, know I’ve loved you,
although we never shared
my endless roads.

Because, it’s not me leaving.
It’s just my shape
destined for this life.

It won’t be me going,
but something made of stars
to be returned, by a gentle touch,
to the vault of stars,
to be returned to eternity
where it belonged long ago.

I’m never the one going away!
