How Many Times

How many times
I have looked at the stars
as if they can lead me
straight to You,

as if with their help
I could find my way
and still untouchable
they hang above me

but Your name stays on my lips
as if the power of it
can catch everything around me
and to You my life is bound.

[Hata Bildir]
