Mesut Selvi 1957 (TURKEY)
My life is a rocking chair on this complicated world.
It's rocking routinely one forward,one backward.
My life is a swing.It has been swinging in the air.
The chains of the swing looks like your long hair.
My life is a sailboat. It moves ahead in a lovesick wind.
It's sailing on the ocean with the blowing of your love wind.
But unfortunately, the rudder of my life is in your careless hand.
I want to control it but it's under control of your merciless hand.
My life is a kite. It is flying and watching you hopefully in the sky.
You've tied the string of the kite from my gentle heart.
You pull the string, to find out my loyalty, from my butterfly heart.
I've spent a life to reach you and your undecided love.
You don't still understand me and my pure and deep love.
Neither writing your name on desks nor sticking your photos on walls,
Neither scraping your heart and my love's arrow on the bodies of trees
Nor sending you letters,flowers and composing you love melodies,
They've never softened your heart to give me a positive answer.
Saying "yes",can earn you an endless happiness with a strong lover.
A lover who knows the real value of the love and the lover.
Put a full stop for this waiting.Say one word to calm my heart's fever
