Najih Shakir Al-Baldawi,
You laid down your life
to save many friends.
No hesitation could stop
the Love in your heart,
or the strength of your spirit.
Someone stepped into your shrine
vested with violence,
and you embraced him.
What Love is this?
It is the Creator’s Love.
It is eternal Love found in paradise.
Najih, my brother, I will see you there.
