I Fall On The Road

Where You Fell Out Of My Eyes

You didn’t know me because I was a small tree,

They cut me untimely, I didn’t have any shadow.

Stumps are left after huge trees are cut

Any of my tracks isn’t left in the height of a tree.


From where you could know I feel cold,

The clothes of my spirit are rotten long ago.

You cut such a grief it doesn’t fit to my frame

I am covered with the grief of my future.


How to look at the face of justice

Such partings are sorrow for the God.

I fall on the road where you fell out of my eyes

I am going to look for you there.



The Tears Of My Eyes

Will Curse You

Forget me so that I can forget you too,

Don’t turn back to test my heart once more.

Let my variegated sorrow be only mine,

Take your love and don’t reprobate me.


Don’t say that this world is betrayer,

Don’t scold me for I bent at my destiny so.

I was more patient than the mountains,

They changed me, I wasn’t so long ago.


Now it is time for this love to pass away,

There will be a grave in my heart as big as you.

I shall neither sigh no I mention your name,

The tears of my eyes will curse you.




This Love Has Headache

Since It Is Born


In order to bury your greeting

I throw another greeting on yours.

This love has headache since it is born,

I am leaving still we are safe and sound.


Place your sorrow inside of you thoroughly,

Let your words remain on your tongue now.

There is no grave for my patience bearing you,

Now live with that patience, die with that patience.


Nobody took revenge for this poor love,

Let’s bury the dead body of this love.

We always promised to each other,

Let’s play with words till the end of our life.
