Shamsiya Khudoynazarova Turumovna
A Drop of Dew
The sky that sighs in my head,
 Is your lightning heart? 
Rain or rain in front of my love, 
You will die in front of me. 

I breathed... I breathed... 
I breathed fire, 
Fire is fire, fire is unstable. 
Ah, I burned a lot of bad in his grass, 
Now my tongue is empty, my life is empty... 

Is your longing sad, O poor World, 
If you miss me, you are not enough. 
"Oh!" fire spews from my mouth 
If I sing, 
You will burn me! 

I lit... I lit... the fire... 
A drop of dew on my poems. 
I don't care about fairy tales anymore, 
I don't want to cry even to music...
