أحنّ إلى خبز أمي

و قهوة أمي

و لمسة أمي

و تكبر في الطفولة

يوما على صدر يوم

و أعشق عمري لأني

إذا متّ

أخجل من دمع أمي

ضعيني، إذا ما رجعت

وقودا بتنور نارك

وحبل غسيل على سطح دارك

هرمت ،فردّي نجوم الطفولة

حتى أشارك

صغار العصافير

درب الرجوع

الى عشّ انتظارك

I long for my mother's bread
My mother's coffee
And her touch.
Childhood memories grow in me
Day after day
And I love my life
Because if I die
I'd be ashamed of
My mother’s tears.
If I ever come back
Use me as wood
To feed your fire
As the clothesline on
The roof of your house.
I am old
Give me back the
Star maps of childhood
So that I
Along with the swallows
Can chart the path
Back to your waiting nest.
