Yokluğundaki sen You at Your Absence

Yine yalnız değilim her zamanki gibi
Bu Uzakdoğu gecesinde yokluğunlayım

Aramızda yirmibeşbin kilometre
Sen kıştasın ben yazdayım
Sen bir yarısında d├╝nyanın
Ben ├Âte yarısındayım
Yine de bırakmıyor ellerimi yokluğun
Daha da bir g├Ânl├╝mcesin
Varlığından bin kat g├╝zel
O yalımsal ├žıplaklığın yalaz yalaz
Ve en gizlerden konuşurken ellerin
İ├žimden gelmiyor mektup yazmak demeden
Sevişiyoruz yirmibeşbin kilometreden

I am not alone again, as always
I am with your absence at this far-eastern night

Twenty five thousand kilometers between us
You live winter, I live summer
You are in one half of the world,
I am in the other half
Still, your absence does not leave my hand
You are even more 'for me'
That burning nakedness of you, in flames
Is a thousand times more beautiful than your presence
And as your hands talk about the deepest secrets
I don't want to write to you without saying that
We love each other across twenty five thousand kilometers
