Why? (translated into English)/ Несін?

 

Mukhagali Makhatayev (a Qazaq poet, writer and translator). 

 

Why did you meet, why did you meet, why did you meet with myself?

 

Why did not find anyone else to keep secret  and to be your friend?

 

I have a sad and enough secrets for my life

 

I could not get in addition your sorrows and problems.

 

I have the less my happiness

 

 many roads to feel sadness.

 

Everyone thought when see me first

 

I am happy without problems.

 

Why did you ask,

 

Why did you ask,

 

Why did you ask

 

to be your friend?

 

 

We have trouble situations, disagreements  in deceiving life

 

We have also differ problems,  many tasks for the day.

 

We want to see, we want to feel,  we want to know everything

 

Who saw nothing will unhappy in the end.

 

I have the less my happiness

 

 many roads to have sadness.

 

Everyone thought when see me first

 

I am happy without problems.

 

Why did you ask,

 

Why did you ask,

 

Why did you ask

 

to be your friend?
