Aẖnone w Aẖwoṯo,

Më zabno kmaẖëtno bolo, aẖna mëqqa ḏacifna bi sayasa. Më hawirdor kmiẖawţina, bas aẖna, këmbasmina… Kubac d ubeno maṯlo li ẖale d ucdo d këtna eba.

Šato 1914. 2 b ţëbbax, i dawla di oşmanliye clëmla gëd maltëmina safarbarlëk. B nafs du zabno, mlaltaẖ l laltaẖi dawla këmtakzo, be mën kito quma l ramẖël…

I dawla bdela kmaltëmo ha-ha caskar lu safarbarlëk. Acma, mtarasla aš šexin am mallawin, af faqqawin w an noše sofiya d këtla dë mbašri laţ ţaye ”i ẖkume maqëmla u fërman da mšiẖoye”.

B Beṯ-Nahrin i clayto, b kul dukṯo kkorëx w kmitakrëx u xabro b carabi ”qam fërman ël këffar!” b kurmanji ”fërmana kafëra rabu!” U ţayo d šamëc dë kšomëc, hano mën macna këtle, ǧalabe kayiso kuḏacle. Šroẖo lë kubacle, koḏëc: U mal w u jan du mšiẖoyo mẖalël acle! Bas kubacle u yawmo d hojëm, zëd lo!

Aş şëroyo bi hawaṯe mën saymiwo? B kul dëkṯo mfarfëse, mbarbëze w fliǧewën cal ẖḏoḏe. Aṯi fërşa kul ẖa b šëkël gëd tole ẖayf mu ẖreno!

B Mërde, bi ẖarayto dan 1914 w bi badaye dan 1915, i cito sëryayto ortodoksayto, kfërso manšur bëṯër më manšur. Ebe këmmo: Kul ẖa dlo mcawën i dawlayḏan w i ẖkumayḏan mqabël dad dëžmën baroye w gawoye, gëd uṯele ẖërmo šmayono! Nuro mi šmayo lu ojaǧ du baytayḏe.

Kul ẖa dlë makṯëw ruẖe lu safarbarlëk, bu fërdayso dukṯo latle! Gëd noẖët barqe šmayone cal u baytayḏe!

Bdalle bi cito dë mşalën b lišono oşmanli. Kjëbri ah hadome d mëžǧoli b lišono oşmanli. Baw walayat rabe, kito kuhne hadome b Ittiẖad Qëlubleri di dawle. Hani ksaymi listat d ëšmone, man w man kito bayn daş şëroye, mqabël di dawla oşmanliye.

Kbode u msoko dan noše, kbosëm leba di cito aclayye.

Man şëroyo d azze lu Safarbarlëk, bu darbo haka qţil azze, nošo haw këtle xabro mene ǧer maţ ţayre di šmayo w maẖ ẖëyewën waẖš du ţuro.

Man nošani d xalëş mal lappat du qaţlo, hën maţën l Qafqasya, hën lu Iran, hën lu Cëraq w hën l Ruşya. Hën ste, sahmo nacimo daciri lu Ţuro. Kmo manne aṯën l Ciwardo, aṯën l Hazax. Maẖkalle aydarbo aẖ ẖawronaṯṯe bu dawro ẖa b ẖa qţili w hënne mahzamme.

Ciwardo xayifo ksaymo ẖarake. An nošayḏa këtte tajrube di cašërto, bas mede d romëš, kuḏci be mën macna këtle? Bdalle d saymi mdabrone w a mdabrone maẖëtte qumayye program ”d howe tahluka, mën saymina?” Maltamme gawre, huwanne tfangat catiqe d këtwo b iḏayye.
Hazax, cabiro bi šato daẖ 15 ste, heš ẖarake layt eba. Bas kul yawmo kuṯela noše d mahzamme mu qaţlo w mu tëqţilo. Bu rabëc koṯe më Gziro u mẖasyo Ḫasyo Bëhnam Caqrawi. Sowo cëmre cël ma 80 šne. B cayne ẖzele am mëskene d mahzamme w caşën b Hazax. Huwwe ste hzele tahluka rabṯo aṯaytoyo cal aş şuroye.

Qrele lar rabe, masëmle mdabrone mşalele cal qarcayye, mbarxile w mërlelën ”Ya an abnayḏi! I arco mbaraxtaṯe diḏanyo! W namës d kulanyo! Šan xulşo mal lappat di ţayuṯo, dlo zëcṯo qumu w hawu u admaṯxu šana! Maxleşu u namës dëṯxun w di şuruṯo me iḏe daw waẖš! Moran w i Ndaṯ Aloho acmayxunyo, mẖawu dlo aţlahiye! Alo mbarax aclayxun!”

Sëmme Fëdawiye d Yešoc. Ag gawre kulle rizi bu dawro šan dë mdafci cal u namusaṯṯe, i arco mqadašto, mbaraxto dë ynëqqe mu ẖalwo ẖalal d hulalën hani alfowat d ëšne.

Këtte dostat bayn dak kurmanj, koṯën blalyo komhawri mriše du ţuro cal ah hazxoye bu kurmanji: Noše d Hazax! Ḫënno! Šëmcun! Aqubo! Xogazo! Kamţelan ay yasire niše w nacime d falët maq qaflat du qaţlo. Kulle zalţone, kafine w kayiwe. Toxu b qamuṯayye macberunne li qriṯo!

Amţalle şuroye, armënoye, kaldoye, oṯuroye,… w man d aṯi ẖwalle. Hawxa cabër ǧalabe noše l Hazax w l Ciwardo.

Aṯi ǧalabe noše l Mëḏyaḏ ste. An noše Bë-Hërmëz ẖwanne lab botaṯṯe. Hawënne moro! Ḫanne Safar u rabo d Mëḏyaḏ, sëmle lista ban noše d hawën moro lam mëskene yasirani. I lista b iḏe bëṯër mëblole l Mërde. Hëwole li ẖkume.

B Mëḏyaḏ bdalle bu şaydo du msoko blalyo bi cëtmo.

Bas l mën?
He kayiso lë kuḏcina!
Ma ema gëd bëdena d uḏcina?

Aẖna am mëḏyoye

Aẖna am mëḏyoye,
Mu yawmo d yawma
Krëẖmina i barbariye
Mu ẖa d caqlan këmminale
”Ceq kurmanjyo!”

Haka ẖzelan ẖa mẖalmoyo,
Xayifo këmmina acle
”De ẖurle l abre di maẖramto
Heš aṯmël şëroyowe!”

D ẖuzena ẖa čalkoyo këmmina
”De ţrawu mene! Heš b aḏne
laẖmo dë şcore koxël!”

D ẖuzena ẖa më Karjos këmmina
”Qumu xayifo warox, Usëve Aǧeʾyo
Bu dawro nẖatu l qamuṯe!”

D ẖuzena ẖa kfarzoyo këmminale
”Mẖase babox! Maẖkaylan, bu masoso
Aydarbo qadëritu cal u šiḏo?”

D ẖuzena ẖa stëloyo këmmina
”Abri drayle šlomo! Macmur di dawleyo
Gëd luzmatle!”

I naqqa d ẖuzena ẖa përuţ ste këmminale
”Ḫur abri! Haṯe meni šmaca! W lo më ǧer
Ţayo ẖanfo këweno, bas përuţ lo!”

D ẖuzena ẖa cwarnoyo këmminale
”B Mor Ḫëššabo, zravat latwolxun!
Aṯitu l Mëḏyaḏ, ma latwe caybo,
Qţëlxu Šarif Afandi u taẖsildar!?

Aẖna am mëḏyoye
Këtwolan Cazizke, Nuriko w Ziwarko
Aǧawiye! Blalyo w bimomo
Muklinawolën w maštenawolën
Ǧalabe mamnunwan mu gnowo,

Këtwolan kuhne,
”Hama bu Mgalyën qadišo!
Hawxa lë ksaymi!
Bad dugle kmëfqi aclayye!”
Hul ucdo kyumanne.

Aẖna am mëḏyoye
”Jawharna! Jawhar!”
Lo bu Hënd w lo bu Sënd
Aloh layt xëdwoṯayna!

Aẖna am mëḏyoye
Ḫëngi d këtna qaroye

”Zu bë zu” bërǧi lë krëẖmina!

De šmacu w ẖzawu, be mën šëkëlna?
Këmmina cal ak karboraniye
”Loooo! Latne şëroye! Farza d këmmi!?
Cal foṯayye, heš şlibo lë kuḏci ţurẖi!”

Aẖna am mëḏyoye
Dayëm as sëfoqayḏan b femaynane
Kul šuǧlo d këtlan bënne kšurena!
W bënne ste kmaşrina!

Han naqqa lë kforëq
Cito, gudo, maḏbëẖo, ẖuḏro, ẖuyoḏo,…
24 sacat xi kiyyo klucsinalle
Qëm ar rabayḏan w qëm an nacimayḏan

Bëṯër këmmina
”Alo an nacimayḏan faliti!
Ḫuwwe haw këtlan!”

Hama mu falgo ste, faydeyo dcar!

Maţën l qanaca w mërre lë ẖḏoḏe
”Alo gëd manţenale kuhno dë mşale cal riše,
Huwwe lë krëẖamme, bas d ëmminale:
Ḫasyoyo, balki maqbël?!”

W mërre: Ḫuru aẖnone, d amţena ẖasyo,

Hiw talafon, ǧer më ẖa lë madcarle,
W mërle: Alo niye latwoli,… bas b kallayo ha!

Ma mëqqa këbcët ẖasyo?
Madcarle: D uṯeno,… yawmo ʾraẖaʾ gëd moyëṯ.

Këbacno tloṯ danat mëklo,
Mazlo w maṯyo. Otel, b 9 këkwe
W ëno, bi saca kcëwadno, kulle gëd mëbnoyi
Mu mede d maẖëtli ste, zarnix nẖoto layt?
D ubcitu, ucdo bu rahţo aṯoyono.

Aẖ ẖawrone: Acccccccccaw! Mën ţimo!
Mërre lu ẖasyo: Ḫasyo hdëm bayto! Hawxa b ţimoyo hak!
Ḫţiṯoyo! U Jan dlë docër mu darbo gëd mifarfëţ!

Madcarle: Sacaye ẖreto, jawab mënayxu d loṯe,
U ẖaq gëd solëq lë tre!
Fušu ba šlomo!

Hani du carabki bazarne

Aẖnone,
Ǧalabe naqlat mërli:
Şfero b ruqe lë kowe!

Hani, du carabki bazarne
Appe fuje bu xan mëzwanwo
U dawrano tayëm!

U cwodo d ramẖël w du ẖreno
Adyawma kubacle ẖëḏoro
Manyo u stad? Ţroṯe!
U hosta ste ţroṯe.

Bu xurjo, bu šalo, mën kit?
Hay hawaryo ţër manfëqile,
Bu qalam, ẖa b ẖa, bu şurayt
Ţër këṯwile!

Nëquşo ziyudo, ucdo ǧamo layt!
Hawxa ubena w šuqlina cam ẖḏoḏe
Ëllah l natije gëd moţe!

Assëẖi, kuḏac ǧalabe kayiso
Ǧer menan, hawxa maţën.
