Whispering lovers

Is it the gloomy clouds
Or the sulky sun
injuring my heart?
How long can I prevent my tears?
How long will the April rains
Compete with my tears in fears?

How much power can I have
to stand this endless yearning?
To put out this heart burning?

I wish no jewelry no gold.
AlI I wish is your soft hands to hold.
No golden palaces are in our dreams.
Some cheese and a few olives
will be enough for our breakfast.
You are the only prayer
From the God I asked.

Whether my dreams are black and white.
please, be close to me,not out of sight.
Let the sun feel miser
To give its light to us.
Who cares whether the stars
Shine or keep their faces in shadow.
Keeping a distance with the glow.

Let them blindfold our eyes,
To prevent me from seeing my dearest.
Still my heart to you will be the nearest.
Leave us on the deserts or on the poles,
No one is to harm the peace in our souls.
Our sheets of love poems will be our blanket
To cover us in the depth of the grief.

Nightingales envy whispering lovers,
Nightingales envy our sweet talks,
No need to scream, no need to shout aloud.
Just a soft whisper is enough
To express our storming feelings.

As the angels admire the whispers of the lovers
Under the blanket, whispering lovers
Shyly will be sending flowers.
When the hours pass like seconds
I wait for the happiness that reckons.

Whispering lovers are sailing on blue seas
Whispering lovers pray for meeting on their knees.
