40 years after he proposed, Agim Doçi found the girl who once said

He told his love story in a television interview a few years ago, but today, with his departure from this world, we are bringing it back once again.

Poet Agim Doçi and his wife could have turned their story into a movie script.

Not just once, but twice, Agim Doçi proposed to the girl he liked.

Yllka was a student at that time.

40 years after he proposed, Agim Doçi found the girl who once said

"I liked her finesse, elegance, the way she walked without depending on anyone. Well, I said among all, he would accept me. It was indifferent. I took her hand and put it on mine, but she told me: I don't build my happiness on the pain of another. That he had heard that I was dating another girl. When my father came, he asked me and said: Can two pumpkins be kept under one armpit? I said: Yes, I have two armpits. Anyway we went on with our lives. We got married and Yllka returned to Durrës", the poet once said.

While life brought them both to divorce and 39 years later she was 56 years old, and he was 58 years old, they met again. Coincidentally, this time Yllka asked him for a job. They met, drank a coffee for 13 minutes before being separated again.
