Rıhtımda On the Quay

Bir beyaz gemiydi ayıran onları
Kadın g├╝vertedeydi, adam rıhtımda
Adamın g├Âzleri aklımda

Kana bulanmış bı├žaklar gibi
Uzun kirpikleri ıslaktı
Adam dertli, adam darmadağın
Dokunsalar aglayacaktı

Adam bitkindi, adam seviyordu
Kalan kederdi, giden gemiyse
Taş oldugu i├žindir dedim
Rıhtım taşları erimediyse

Derken bir d├╝d├╝k ├Âtt├╝ ansızın
Bembeyaz gemi gitgide ufaldı
Korkun├ž yalnızlığıyla baş başa
Rıhtımda bir adam kaldı

It was a white ship separating them
The woman was on the deck, and the man on the quay
I still remember the man's eyes

His long eyelashes were wet
Like knives dirty with blood
The man was sorrowful, the man was ruined
It would take only a touch to make him cry

The man was tired, he was in love
The ship was departing, leaving behind the grief
Why didn't the quay melt at that moment?
It must be because it was made of stone

Then, a whistle was blown all of a sudden
The white ship got smaller and smaller
There was a man on the quay
Left alone with his terrible loneliness
