Simon Dedvukaj, 26, of Mohegan Lake, NY, died tragically at the attacks on the WTC. He was a janitorial foreman for ABM Industries & worked in the north tower. He was a well liked person, always making people laugh; thinking of others first & himself last. He was one of 8 children & always interested in his family's Albanian heritage. After his sister & her husband went to a wedding in Albania & saw a girl they thought would be perfect for him, he went there to meet her. Simon brought Elizabeth to the USA & they would have been married 1 year when he passed.

Although I've never met Simon personally, I feel as though I know him from all that I've read about him.

Is such a meagre word
That says nothing of spirit to spirit
Within spirit and flesh

And after...
O what does 'after' mean ?

A thousand years, a day, a moment

In which the moon is another home
And the stars are small, brilliant poems.

A door will open
Then quick and light steps
From memory towards
The nebula of unmemory
