During the LTTA in partner school Oton Iveković in Zagreb, was created a song dedicated to the partner meeting. At a farewell dinner, we discovered that we have a very talented poet from Turkey who has published a collection of poems.
Thank you dear Recep Bağcı for this wonderful gift.
Yağmurlar Zagreb’imize damla damla inince,
Bazen asar yüzünü Zagreb.
Sensizlik bu kentte bekleyince.
Bazen sokaklarında saklıdır.
Bazen sana ait çığlıklar yankılanır
Bazen hatırlanır yıllar sonra
Bazen bir daha dönülmez asla
Ama kin tutmaz Zagreb unutanlara
Senden bir selam bekler Zagreb
Zagreb de yaşadıkların rüyalarına gelince.
Sometimes joy, sometimes fun
Sometimes she smiles with hope
Sometimes Zagreb has a sad face
Loneliness while waiting for you in this city
Sometimes hidden in its streets
And sometimes in its tunnels
Zagreb takes care of love
Sometimes your screams echo
And sometimes my rebellions
Zagreb becomes deaf can not hear any of us
Sometimes it is remembered years later
Sometimes you can never turn back
But Zagreb does not get offended to those who forget
Sometimes Zagreb happens to be me;
Sometimes Zagreb happens to be you;
Every time you happen to be in Zagreb
She expects a hello from you
When the memories of Zagreb visit you in your dreams.
