My Homeland

Updated on February 29, 2016

If you ask me
which place on Earth I love the most,
I will tell you, my Homeland,
which I would never trade for any cost.

For all the gold of the world
or a name of king or lord,
I would never exchange my heart and soul
because without them I will be lost.

Whenever I go too far away,
I carry her in my heart, through
my veins she flows with the blood,
lighting a thirst into flames.

The thirst for coming back,
to see again my mountains and valleys
to let the eye seek for the beauty
of my sea, flowers and the morning breeze.

To hear my brothers
and beloved friends,
to see a Land above all lands,
to kiss her and hug her, with my hands.
