seviyorum seni
ekmeği tuza banıp,yer gibi

Geceleyin ateşler içinde uyanarak
ağzımı dayayıp musluğa su içer gibi

Ağır posta paketini
neyin nesi belirsiz
telaşlı, sevinçli, kuşkulu açar gibi

Seviyorum seni
denizi ilk defa uçkakla geçer gibi

Istanbul'da yumuşacık kararırken ortalik
içimde kımıldayan birşeyler gibi

Seviyorum seni
Yaşıyoruz çok şÃ¼kür der gibi

A poem by Nazım Hikmet, you can find it at the poems section, I just copied the translation from there:

Seviyorum Seni

Seviyorum seni
ekmeği tuza banıp yer gibi
Geceleyin ateşler içinde uyanarak
ağzımı dayayıp musluğa su içer gibi
Ağır posta paketini
neyin nesi belirsiz
telaşlı, sevinçli, kuşkulu açar gibi
Seviyorum seni
denizi ilk defa uçakla geçer gibi
İstanbul'da yumuşacık kararırken ortalık
içimde kımıldayan birşeyler gibi
Seviyorum seni
Yaşıyoruz çok şÃ¼kür der gibi.


I Love You

I love you
like dipping bread into salt and eating
Like waking up at night with high fever
and drinking water, with the tap in my mouth
Like unwrapping the heavy box from the postman
with no clue what it is
fluttering, happy, doubtful
I love you
like flying over the sea in a plane for the first time
Like something moves inside me
when it gets dark softly in Istanbul
I love you
Like thanking God that we live.

Just buy some of the bread you like (this goes best with white bread in my opinion), pour some olive oil in a small bowl, dip your bread in the olive oil, sprinkle some salt and eat Alternatively, there are olive-sprays or ones you can easily pour on the bread, then you dont have to dip. What I always do, is first rub some garlic over the bread before pouring the olive oil, its simple and delicious. But first we added olive oil, now I added garlic too, so lets return to the poem
