We Wait by Sam Hamod: Turkish translation by Nisa Leyla (Ceviri, Nisa Leyla, “Bekleriz”)

 WE WAIT

the golden flowers

of the zucchini

spreading in my little garden

ask of you,

the begonias

basil and rosemary

as well, they want to feel

your hands close to them

in the dirt you love,

in the dirt I love with you

beside me,

we wait

as sun goes down,

violets close their eyes,

and we wait

knowing some day

you will come home

BEKLERİZ

kabağın altın çiçekleri

küçük bahçeme yayılıyor

seni soruyor begonyalar,

fesleğen ve biberiye

onlar da

ellerini yanlarında istiyorlar

sevdiğin kirin içinde

sen de sevdiğim gibi

yanımda bekleriz güneş batarken

menekşeler gözlerini yumar

ve bekleriz bir gün

eve döneceksin
