Where Are You My Faith – Magtymguly Pyragy

Where Are You My Faith
Oh, what should I do, my dearest, where are you?
My companion in two worlds, my faith, where are you?
The light of my eyes, the brightest ray, where are you?
What is the Garden of Paradise for me, my heavenly moon, where are you?
My mother, my Mecca Medina, where are you?
Oh, due to the severity of fate the soul abandoned the body.
Her soul separated and left to the city of Paradise.
Oh, the tops of the mountains have freed themselves from the mist mixed with rain,
Oh, today woke up with grief having dried the ocean,
My mother, my Mecca Medina, where are you?
I couldn’t see her flower-like face in that eternal world as much as I wished,
With tears in both her eyes she said: “I didn’t see the light,”
“Pyragy, Pyragy!”—She called, forgetting her further words,
When she put herself into suffering within the soil against her will,
My mother, my Mecca Medina, where are you?
Even the partridge wouldn’t leave her child in the desert,
The nightingale always cries, revealing her grief to the universe,
What can a mountain deer’s fawn do when it is out of its mother’s care,
Bad luck does not have any shame; it subjected us to a separation,
My mother, my Mecca Medina, where are you?
Kings will abandon their throne if they have no people,
If you put a tree into fire, it will burn and turn into ashes,
If you destroy a beehive, they will gather and fly away,
If a yeanling dies in the presence of his mother, the mother wouldn’t be able to bear it,
My mother, my Mecca Medina, where are you?
The cattle will be gathered and given to a shepherd,
If the shepherd is sleeping, the cattle will certainly scatter around,
Every time they will run into a jackal, leaving none alive.
Oh my friends, I have encountered such an end to the world
My mother, my Mecca Medina, where are you?
The entire nation moaned wishing to see you,
The spring disappeared turning into winter,
Clouds rained heavily getting angry with my state,
The mudflow will rush like an ocean, overflowing the whole world,
My mother, my Mecca Medina, where are you?
Suddenly I found myself in the garden and saw my flowers faded,
My nightingales died not from the blade, but from the fire of hell,
The river burst its banks and flooded the whole world,
The entire nation of mine is crying, marking the day of mourning,
My mother, my Mecca Medina, where are you?
Look, today a brave, young man dropped his sword,
He can’t find a way out in this vast and endless world,
The cypress tree suddenly lost all its leaves,
All my uncles, her brothers and sisters are moaning and crying badly,
My mother, my Mecca Medina, where are you?
Having lost my dear mother, I called myself Pyragy,8
I forgot everyone, family and friends, even a single thing that once belonged to me,
The robber cast an eye and captured my most precious diamond today,
The mountains fell into pieces not being able to bear my flaming grief,
My mother, my Mecca Medina, where are you?
