I dedicate this book to the soul of my father who died in war when I was three years old. To the spirit that I didn’t have the chance to know while growing up. To my mom who raised four children alone, who is an impressive role model on how to be strong no matter what life throws at you and who never gave up on life or on us. To my two wonderful children, this book is written as a proof for you to believe in your dreams, in yourself and to do what you love to do. To the readers of this book, I hope you will be able to relate to those poems and I hope they will be an added value to your life. A writer’s dream is to reach as many hearts as possible and to deliver a significant message to change people’s lives for the better. I hope I’m able to do that. To humanity, I’m happy to leave a small trace in this world and make a small difference. Last but not least, to our heavenly father, I love you no matter what.
