Back to my land


My glass is not yet full
Of worries woes and pain
My search for happiness
Never ends but goes in vain

I lost family and friends
And He has never been kind
Among unknown faces I live
My love too I left behind

What drew me to this land
Love or wealth I don’t know
But I got none of these
And to my land I long to go

It’s perhaps the fragrance
That comes out of the earth
That floats around me always
That flows from my land of birth

I can’t stay here anymore
This soul now needs an escape
I will be back soon to my land
To sleep forever on its lap

Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
