Best Poem of Matthias Pantaleon

Andoni Islands

As the wind blows toward to my homeland
my heart melt a thousand times
From afar I could hear the waves
whispering on the river bank

Sun smiles more beautiful on water surface
Blue sky merge where earth meets heaven
Palms sway this way and that
Homeland is greener than ever

The pulse of my heart increases

This is home to many sons afar
Sons who may never see their motherland

As I thought of sons who have fallen
in distant land tears pour plentiful
How foolish we are to think
We will ever be happy in ...
