When you remember me,
Think kindly of me sometimes.
Smile when you see me in the street,
Your hand in mine, stay for a while.
Let me visit you at your house,
Make coffee for me.
Give me a glass of water
From the freshly filled decanter.
Just fine, that’ll be…
Ziya Osman Saba (1910-1957). Yetişir. Translated from the Turkish.
