SINCE YOU DID NOT COME

 

Without you the sea became turbulent, and the waves got foamed out of their grief
The darkness angrily spreaded its skirt and covered everywhere
Feeling tired, the seagulls in the sky do not want to fly
The sea, the beach and my loving heart are all sad,
Since you did not come…

 

by LEYLA IŞIK (b. 1958, Turkey)
