Poems by Tatjana DEBELJACKI 

 

MOTHER 

If your life was dying slowly,
In this rhythm mine was living fast.
It is the same:
I can see the day, I can see the great day,
I can see the glorious day,
My mother.
If something is tearing my soul apart,
though I put a lot of optimism into it,
believe me, mother.
You are special.
In your eye is my happiness,
Just because of you
I am persistent and positive.
Evil comes and goes.
We have met again and we chased,
And in circle again.
Sadness makes lips silent.
Don’t I have a right to love aloud?
I will write a long poem.

 

IBU

Jika hidup mu sedang mati perlahan-lahan 
Dalam rentak ini, hidup ku sangat laju 
Ianya sama saja: 
Aku boleh melihat hari ini, aku boleh melihat hari hebat ini 
Aku boleh melihat hari gemilang ini 
Ibu ku,
Kalau sesuatu mengoyak-rabakkan jiwa ku 
Walau pun aku pertaruhkan optimisme yang tinggi tentangnya 
Percayalah ibu, 
Engkau sangat istimewa 
Di mata mu lah kebahagiaan ku 
Hanya kerana mu 
Aku jadi tabah dan positif 
Kejahatan datang dan pergi 
Kita bertemu lagi dan mengejar 
Dalam kitaran sekali lagi 
Kesedihan menjadikan bibir 
Apakah aku tidak berhak bercinta dalam terang
Aku akan menulis sebuah puisi panjang

 

MISTAKES

We no longer remember the mistake,
our house started to crumble down,
add one spark more.
Do you want to be honored for your efforts and fire?
Did we feel anything at all?
Though we were born…

The dying inside seems the worst,
dying out slowly…

 

KESILAPAN

Kita tidak lagi ingat segala kesilapan Dan rumah kita mula runtuh Dan ditambah dengan satu lagi percikan api Adakah engkau mahu dihormati kerana usaha dan api tersebuat? Walaupun kita dilahirkan …… 
Kematian dalam jiwa lebih teruk, dan di luar kematian itu lebih perlahan.
