Muß es eine Trennung geben

Language: German (Deutsch)

Muß es eine Trennung geben,
Die das treue Herz zerbricht?
Nein, dies nenne ich nicht leben,
Sterben ist so bitter nicht.

Hör' ich eines Schäfers Flöte,
Härme ich mich inniglich,
Seh' ich in die Abendröte,
Denk' ich brünstiglich an dich.

Gibt es denn kein wahres Lieben?
Muß denn Schmerz und [Trauer]1 sein?
Wär' ich ungeliebt geblieben,
Hätt' ich doch noch Hoffnungsschein.

Aber so muß ich nun klagen:
Wo ist Hoffnung, als das Grab?
Fern muß ich mein Elend tragen,
Heimlich bricht das Herz mir ab.

Ayrılık olmalı mı

Language: Turkish (Türkçe) after the German (Deutsch)

Ayrılık olmalı mı, 
Vefalı kalbi parçalayan?
Hayır ben buna yaşamak demem: 
Ölmek bile bu kadar acı değil.

Bir çobanın kaval sesini duyduğumda 
içim parçalanıyor,
Akşam kızıllığına bakınca 
Tutkuyla seni düşünüyorum.

Hiç gerçek aşk yok mu? 
Hep acı ve ayrılık mı olmalı? 
Şayet sevilmemiş olsaydım 
Hala bir ümit ışığım olabilirdi.

Ama şimdi yakınmak zorundayım: 
Mezardan başka nerede ümit var?
Acımı çok uzaklara taşımak zorundayım. 
Gizli gizli kalbim parçalanıyor.
