The Passing Boat

The Passing Boat

By Askin Ozcan (Mentor)

A boat passes in front of me

and carries my dreams away.

A boat comes from ´far

and brings news of you.

I always sit on the rocks

and watch the boats sail by.

Talking to them,

both my time passes nicely

and my words don´t go in vain. 

A boat has passed in my dreams,

carried my life away.

A boat came from afar,

named Death " as they say.

I always sat on the rocks

and watched the boats sail by.

This way, the boats became old,

and I became I. "
