Seni Düşünmek – To Think of You

by Nazim Hikmet

Seni düşünmek güzel şey, ümitli şey

To think of you is a beautiful thing, a hopeful thing

Dünyanın en güzel sesinden
En güzel şarkıyı dinlemek gibi bir şey

It’s as if listening to the most beautiful song sung by the world’s most beautiful voice

Fakat artık ümit yetmiyor bana,
Ben artık şarkı dinlemek değil

But hope isn’t enough for me anymore, I no longer want to listen to the song

Şarkı söylemek istiyorum

I want to sing the song

English translation by E. Geddes
