кошки: if only
Кошки дирӯз ҳамин хел мешуд.
If only yesterday had been like this.
Кошки ин сухан аз даҳонаш намебаромад!
If only those words hadn’t come out of his mouth!
I wish I had known.
Кошки could also be translated as “I wish…” or “O that…”
Кошки can also be a response to something that sounds too good to be true. For example, somebody says that they have heard that there will be no snow this winter. You reply – “Кошки”, “If only”.
