Is not silence more painful than death? Sessizlik ölümden daha acıtıcı değil midir?



Extinguish my eyes, I still can see you,
Close my ears, I can hear your footsteps fall,
And without feet I still can follow you,
And without voice I still can to you call.
Break off my arms, and I can embrace you,
Enfold you with my heart as with a hand.
Hold my heart, my brain will take fire of you,
As flax ignites from a lit fire-brand–
And flame will sweep in a swift rushing flood,
Through all the singing currents of my blood.

Kör et gözlerimi; yine de görürüm seni,
kapat kulaklarımı: Duyabilirim seni,
ayaklarım olmadan da gelebilirim sana,
çağırabilirim seni ağzım olmadan da.
Koparsan da kollarımı, tutarım seni,
yüreğimle, ellerimle olduğu gibi,
kapatsan da yüreğimi, beynim çarpacak,
ve beynime salsan da alevler,
kanımın her damlasında taşırım seni.

Extinguish My Eyes
Rainer Maria Rilke

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
