I need nothing except only the love of my beloved
You are the greatest hope of my soul and body
You are the finest rose in a land of gardens
I would visit you if only I had the chance
Let my face be shamed before the glory of the dawn

Desire for Spring

Abdurehim Ötkur
translated by Aziz Isa Elkun

The moth in the candle flame
Burns itself bravely
For your beautiful face my love
I would sacrifice myself. 

Once you came with a smile
The flower garden was filled with your love
Where have these days gone
Now I have become a wanderer.

I miss you my country

translated by Aziz Isa Elkun

(poet unkown)


The pain in my soul and tears in my eyes

If I see a Uyghur person coming in the distance
My desire will come flooding in like the sea
I miss you my country. 

I can’t stand a moment without thinking of you
You are there at the most beautiful cliff
I can’t stay a moment without thinking of you
You are there in my beautiful dreams.
I buried my greatest hopes inside you
I miss you my country.
