Poems by Osman ÖZTÜRK
 
 
I have realized from your eyes that this love was over
 
I have realized from your eyes that this love was over
To see that your agape inside you was gone for some time
To know that you have made a vow not to come back again
Apparently you have kept your feelings like a secret
 
I would have not believed that one love would end just like this
I would have not thought your deceitful look as a great love
I would have not burnt like this being far away from you
Apparently you have kept your feelings like a secret
 
Believe me, your sobbing inside me shall never quiet
Alas, the sound of your heart shall be listened by my heart
Nobody except you shall be tending my aching wound
Apparently you have kept your feelings like a secret
 
English Translation by Mesut Şenol
 
 
 
 
 
SHOULD YOU EVER HEAR ANY HICCUP INSIDE THE DARKNESS
 
Should you ever hear any hiccup inside the darkness
Should you have a faraway look then when you think of me
After having a super storm of dreariness in your heart
Should you hide away your tears in the darkness of the night
Just so you know I missed you.
 
Should there be a shooting star in the blue sky of your eyes
Should a wave of blue sea suddenly slap across your knees
And when you happen to see a crying heart in your dreams
Should a drop of tears happen to fall from your deep blue eyes
Just so you know I missed you.
 
Should the early eager morning sunlight hit your windows
Should you get a lump in your throat and then be out of breath
And as those lovely love songs would be playing in your ears
Should a kindly longing thunderstorm blow warmly throughout
Just so you know I missed you.
