Elmaya Jabbarova
I wish it was that garden again...

I wish it was that garden again... 
Once ours 
Then sold, 
As I fall, 
I remember I'm slowly getting sad. 
My memories of you 
Dissolves like a wash 
It opens one by one 
Like a sheet in a notebook. 
I say oh my 
See how much of my life 
This cruel time is over. 
I wish it was back then... 
Hidden from the fence - hidden, 
We looked, we looked. 
Even if the seers 
Come to justice, to the screw 
We would be ashamed 
He kept this secret. 
Half, when I see you, 
the world was mine 
We were happy, we laughed, 
We fell into dreams, 
We didn't get what we wanted. 
We would hold hands, 
We took wings and flew, 
Floating in the dark sky, 
Let's be friends with the birds. 
Do you see my love 
Wishes are sweeter than honey, 
Moments with you 
Written in my memory.

games of fate, 
Dig a well very deep, 
The wind blowing between us 
Be it cold or cool, 
How much breath I have 
Dream and copy I will engrave in my heart 
I will always love you. 

I wish it was that garden again! ...
