HAMLET ISAXANLI – Do You Remember?

Do you remember there was a boy,
Who lived in dreams all his life,
And his untamed heart
Excited by a pleasant sight?
Do you remember there was a boy,
Launching paper ships
far from his wondering sight
Down by the muddy riverside?
Do you remember there was a boy,
Sailing in a big steamer
Once approached the blue bank
Where all his dreams sank?
Do you remember there was a boy,
Singing as a sweet nightingale
for his flower like beauty
Standing on the bay?
Do you remember there was a boy,
Standing aboard
disappeared from the sight
And there were tears in the beauty’s eyes?
Do you remember there was a boy,
Sitting by the waterless river side
Making paper planes
Flying high in the blue skies?
Do you remember there was a boy,
Though happiness seemed in his eyes,
His sobbing heart burst in vain dreams
And there were planes in the blue skies?…
