Restless Soul - Poem by Elena Sandu

Have not forgot my native tongue:
Lucky me! !
But chance to use it,
almost none.

(them) OH!
~Dancing feet
on life's floor
Who's the lucky one of all? ! ~

Fairly ok
Are friends and family:
Yeey! ! Lucky me! !
But all I see or hear of them
only few words
..rarely.

(them) OH!
Dancing feet
on Life's floor
who's the lucky one of all?

I live safely, an 'ok' life
Whoow! Lucky me!
But I am not quite happy
nor very glad.

(them) OH!
Dancing feet
on life's floor
who's the lucky one of all?

Lately
I hear the call:
Lucky me! !
'-Get off this life or
Start to change your world! !

Them: OH!

Now, your turn to answer,
please do tell:
Who's the lucky one of all? ?

Running away they say:
-Me!
-me!
-me!
-me! ! !

    A beautiful poem with a fantastic rhythm, sounds like a song.
    Missing the familiar sounds of our native tongue.
    Missing our family and friends of old.
    And yet, Elena I count myself lucky to be in this far away land.
    Working abroad we go through a million of challenges,
    but then, the new horizons, the experiences rich in surprises
    somehow make it special.
    I myself enjoy very much to skype with my family.
    I truly regret that skype and internet was not as it is today when my mom was still alive.
    I pray for your peace of mind and wish you all the best.
    Form Hans, your friend from Belgium, working in Malaysia for more than 20 y.

    xThe first verse sums up a sadness most of us can only dimly imagine, to be away from people we know, in a place where our mother tongue is unknown.
