Yapayalniz 

Ortasinda kalmis denizlerin;

Ne elinde bir tahta parçasi,

Ne sirtinda can kurtaran.

Rotasi degisiyor dört direkli gemilerin

Korkularindan.

Dalgalar kulaçlamakla bitmese de, 

Onun son nefesini çok bekleyeceksin okyanus.

 

=================

He is all by himself

In the middle of an ocean

There is neither a peice of wood in his hands

Nor he is wearing a life jacket

Ships are changing their routes 

Because of fear

Though swimming can never overpower the waves

But ocean, you will have to wait 

For a long long time for his last breath..

 

my try..
