Seni "love"ıyorum

 

Seni bana "forward" eden "fate"e "sacrafice" olayım

İki "hand"im "blood"ta, iki "eye"ım iki "fountain" olsa da

Seni "love"ıyorum, benim "blue-eyed beloved"ım

Bunu "never forget" etme, beni "never ignore" etme

 

So romantic

i dont like mixing languages, using their vocabulary is ok but not like that above.

 

the last line seem incorrect. there are triple negatives which equalls to confusion.
"never", "ignore", "forget" are negatives and -me (in etme) is negative too.

 

Two negatives is ok. for example:

Hiç yapmamış değilim: I did it at least once.

"Ignore" and "forget" are gramatically positive but semantically negative. I used two negatives together (never forget etme) because in Turkish sometimes we use them this way. Ex: Hiç gitmedim.
