YOUR LOVE NEVER LEFT ME

Your love never left me.
I hungered and thirsted
in the treacherous, dark night.
My soul was stranger, my soul was silent
my soul was shattered…
And my hands were handcuffed
I was without tobacco or sleep
but your love never left me..

Ahmed Arif (from “Hasretinden Prangalar Eskittim” , 1968)

translated by Richard McKane
