Sessiz gemi

Artık demir almak günü gelmişse zamandan,
Meçhule giden bir gemi kalkar bu limandan.
Hiç yolcusu yokmuş gibi sessizce alır yol;
Sallanmaz o kalkışta ne mendil, ne de bir kol.
Rıhtımda kalanlar bu seyahatten elemli,
Günlerce siyah ufka bakar gözleri nemli.
Biçare gönüller! Ne giden son gemidir bu!
Hicranlı hayatın ne de son matemidir bu!
Dünyada sevilmiş e seven nafile bekler;
Bilmez ki giden sevgililer dönmeyecekler
Bir çok gidenin her biri memnun ki yerinden,
Bir çok seneler geçti dönen yok seferinden.

Silent ship

If there comes a time to raise anchor from time, one day more,
A ship will set out from this harbor toward an unknown shore.
It makes way silently, as though it held no living soul;
At that unrocking parting no hand waves as the lines unroll.
Those watching from the wharf are all aching from this journey;
Their eyes sting from holding the black horizon so firmly.
Wretched hearts! What last ship leaving from the homeland is this?
And what deep mourning for a life spent in exile is this?
The loved and the lowing will wait in vain in the world here;
They do not know the belowed will never reappear.
Each of the many who are going are happy they could spend
A number of years here; the passengers never descend.
