Longing For Home

Longing For Home

Poor and lonely,

That I am.

Homesick for birthplace,

Family and friends.

Children I have,

And love them I can.

But still I am longing for family and friends.

People I see can stand and cheer.

A smile on their faces,

But their hearts are not clear.

I have endured hardships aplenty,

Burdened with many a stone.

But still I long for my birthplace,

My home.
