Mesut Selvi 1957 (TURKEY)
I must start my words with a big smile,excitement and happiness.
Yesterday night was the night that I've waited for a long time.
It was the time that I've collected all my fruit I'd planted before.
I was alone at home,listening to love songs and dreaming of you.
Suddenly you knocked at the door with a smile on your face.
I was shocked when you said your parents were at a party.
And I was still puzzled when you said you had lost your door key.
I invited you,turned down the love song,offered you a cup of coffee.
Our conversation started,I found an opportunity to tell you my story.
"It was a long time ago,you and I were ordinary school teenagers.
You were our neighbour's daughter,an innocuous,unbelievable schoolgirl.
But you were my fairy,who gave me the life power,in my little world.
You'd stolen my heart silently,and you didn't know my love to you.
Though I'd fallen in love with you in pain,I didn't tell you about it.
But I had given a promise to myself to deserve your love and you.
First of all,I studied hard,became a diligent and sophisticated one.
I found a good job,had a career and earned money to spend for you.
To tell you my love,I've learnt love stories,lovely songs and words."
And you said,"That's enough.You've already deserved me.It's my turn,
To deserve you,let's fly away to a magic fairyland by making love."
