I Can’t Describe It

                     (moro romantico)

If I cry, will you hear it
In my lines;
Can you touch
My tears with your hands?

I didn’t know how beautiful were songs,
So inadequate were words
Before this sorrow .

I know there is a place;
Everything can be expressed;
I am so close, I hear it;
I can’t describe it.

Orhan Veli (1914-1950). Anlatamıyorum. Translated from the Turkish
