The Street of Happiness
You are the storm inside me,
Wounding my soul as it blows.
I am a ship wreck
At the wild seas
And went to pieces,
With his feelings ruined,
I am like a fish
Having bitten the bait
To hold on to life.
Will you hold my hands
In order stand with me?
If I ask you ever
Where the sAlçınkayatreet of happiness is
Then will you direct me to it?
Spring Is Coming
Look darling spring is coming, cherry trees are blooming, plums wink at the branches.
Butterflies are cocoons, bees beehive,
Daisies are waking up from the soil to a new season.
Birds flapping wings in love.
The earth is awakening to a new life.
Our roses are drying, our memories turn yellow.
My heart is burning, my heart is crying
Without you .
