Karolina Gočeva – Sirena

Zemlja suva,
hladan vetar
vlaži oči
moja nadanja,
davno nestala

Dani, pusti
molitve
i ukus tuge
moja istina
voda duboka

Ja molim morsko dno:
“dođi spasi me,
daj mi život svoj”

Bele školjke
kamenje
i miris mora
moja sećanja
svetlost nemirna

Modra voda,
duša mi je žedna toga
pesak na moj dlan,
dubok miran san

Ja dotakla sam kraj
dođi spasi me,
život svoj mi daj

English Translation

Mermaid

The dry land,
cold wind
hydrated eyes
my hopes,
has since long ago disappeared

Days, let go
prayers
and the taste of sadness
my truth
of the deep water

I plead the seabed:
“come and save me,
give me my life”

White seashells
rocks
and the smell of the sea
my feelings
of the restless light

Blue water,
my soul is thirsty for that
sand on my palm,
a deep peaceful dream

I touched the end
come and save me,
give me my life
