Andoni Islands Poem by 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
As I draw closer to the shore
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 strange land

Here I am in the grip of my mother
The embrace of my father
The kiss of my grandma
The pat of grandpa speaks volume

I feel the love in the air
Felt the warm in the people
Saw the care in their eyes
And I vow never to leave home
