Ah moj e shkrete..
Malli do ta ndaje jeten pergjyse.
Do ecesh perpara do jetosh
Por ajo brenge e fshehur do te te mbyse!

Dhe rrugen ne fund kur ti ta cosh,
Kuptuar s’do kesh kurrsesi,
Nder vitet e humbura do t’kerkosh,
Arsyen pse jetove gjer tani!

Dhe prape do ta ndjesh a’t dritherime.
Do ndizet zjarri i mallit si dikur,
E do te t’behet zemra cope e grime,
Prej mallit qe s’u shua kurre!

Nje lot do te te rrjedhe mbi fytyre,
Dhe ti buzen fort ke per t’kafshuar,
Gjer sa t’rrjedhe gjaku me t’kuqen ngjyre,
E trembur do t’kuptosh qe s’ke jetuar! is an archive of albanian poems. Each day, we bring you a new poem from new books, magazines, and journals.
