Lullaby - Poem by Metin Sahin

my beloved soul
shut your eyes slowly and slowly
and gently
and lıke dıvıng into water
all naked and white
enter a sleep
the most beautıful and lovely dreams
are waiting for you
my beloved soul
help yourself
leave yourself free
as you were in embracement of mine
and my bosom
shut your eyes softly and gently
do not forget me in your sleep
with your greenish grey eyes
lullaby my soul
you are upstairs
in the fruıtful limbs of the green trees
your grey eyes full of sun
your lips mingled with honey
an I am downstairs
with one of my feet in the pit
I will leave this world much much earlıer
than you
never the less
you will be left
without me in your old ages
translation Metin sahin
