Looking for Grave-Clothes – Magtymguly Pyragy

Looking for Grave-Clothes
What does fate do in the market of this transient world?
It will not be looking for any other clothes, but grave-clothes.
It will make blind those capable of seeing, and make speechless the wise ones,
It will leave elderly people lonely by depriving them of their canes.
It will turn the brave into cowards, thus mowing down many of the courageous,
It will leave Muslims lonely by depriving them of their clothes.
The fire of love has been extinguished, what is the guilt of a butterfly?
It separated it, making it shed bloody tears, depriving it from its beloved.
Magtymguly, this old soul of mine is close to sufferings,
I am afraid it will deprive me of my power of speech.
