A beloved Somali love song with such eloquence and poetic depth to it. It’s sung by a songstress called Yurub Geenyo, and is called Sibaan U Nuglaa Baryaba. Somali is a very rich and complex language, one difficult to translate without losing neither its fluidity nor accuracy. Nevertheless, below is my take on the lyrics in the picture.
I count the days as they pass me by
I catch glimpses of wishes that will come to pass by strokes of luck
And in the distance, I see a radiant path
