Young middle aged Central Asian woman with short brown hair, reading glasses, a brown coat and colored blouse.
Shamsiya Khudoynazarova Turumovna

The love has set fire on me, 
I burnt in sparkles, did you see? 
You can see the dance of fire, 
Won’t you come to rescue me? 
Or, are you afraid of fire? 
Can’t you come to me closer? 
I fell like sky into your world 
Which was quiet like the water. 
Dry and wet on fire now,
 Here, we burning face to face. 
We are growing beautifully
 In this awesome fireplace.
