Let Me Take You to Nirvana

Mesut Selvi 1957 (TURKEY)

I've heard that you're deadly alone like cropless fields and empty sky
Feeling the noises from wavy oceans with the vacancy in your heart.
Like a lonely desert flower which is saturated by the lights of sun,
Waiting for the fresh rains to quench your thirst and hunger.
Your eyes are at the horizon; you're confused, hopeless, and in fear.
And I've heard that you look forward to the one who will read you,
The one who will read your brain, heart, feelings, and your wishes,
And will memorize you like a holy book and apply every word in it.
You also look for the one who will mend your terribly broken heart
And will cure your soul and feelings feeding you with his deep love.
Your eyes are still at the horizon and observing a savior lover.
I offer you me, as a savior lover who will read you and cure you.
I'm the lover who will understand you and lay the life under your feet
I'm the one who will stop the storms, which cover your heart and soul.
I'm the lover who will conquer you and will restore your ruined heart.
I invite you to my love,happiness,peace,and heaven for a better living
I'm ready to accept all of your sins,mistakes,and lovely naughtinesses.
Give me a chance,trust me,believe in me, and accept my sincere offer.
Just give one more chance, instead of making a funeral, to yourself,
Because I am the only real lover who will make you reach to nirvana.
