Winds of Istanbul
 
Oh Winds of Istanbul, above me so high
Did you feel my eyes marvel, did you hear my heart sigh?
Did you watch the skies blossom, when the seagulls flew by
Oh winds of Istanbul, above me so shy!

Did you feel my feet stagger, my spirit sweep away
My bare hands soaking in, the tranquil of the bay
Did you feel my joy spread beyond the contours of my face?
..Even beyond the turquoise waters of the Bosphorous straits!

Oh winds of Istanbul, you left me so disarmed
But who has ever resisted your city’s ancient charms?
Impressive architectural structures that have stood the test of time
Reminiscent of the Roman empires, the Ottomans, and Byzantines

Oh did you watch me swell with pride, at the sight of the Mosques
Beautiful, graceful minarets rising above us all
Did you feel my soul resonate, at the sound of the Azaan?
The Islamic call to prayers, to peace, and to all

Oh winds of Istanbul, dazzling from east to west
How I love the way you carry, this mix of Asian and European zest!
From juicy kebabs, Turkish delights, to the most exotic sights and smells
To the crossroads of rich cultures, glowing under the same sunset!

Did you see me fall in love, when you were quiet upon the leaves?
With warm smiles, and gorgeous people, their amazing hospitalities!
Did you catch me gasp, as I stumbled upon the most natural of sceneries?
All the while tucking away, my most beautiful memories

Oh Winds of Istanbul, above me so high
I bet you felt my eyes marvel, you heard my heart sigh
Oh winds of Istanbul, come again...and pass me by
As I wait for you all alone...all alone under my wistful sky.
