Homesick

Tabatabaee House, Kashan, Iran. Photo from IRNA, August 18, 2008.
Homesick,
for a land that holds my childhood
for a place which saw me through love
for streets that saw my joy
for trees that witnessed my tears
for shops that traded kindness
for shopkeepers who sold wisdom
for friends who gave me love
for old ladies who gave me advice
for children who gave me wonder
for youth who gave me pride
for my parents who were my world
for their graves which beckon my tears and tales
for the people who are strung out
for the time that it was
for the place that it was
for the home that it was
for the home that is no longer
for the hope that rests within,
I am homesick.

رفتم از خطه‌ی شیراز و به جان در خطرم
وه کزین رفتن ناچار چه خونین جگرم

میروم دست زنان بر سر و پای اندر گل
زین سفرتاچه شود حال و چه آید به سرم
گاه چون بلبل شوریده درآیم به خروش
گاه چون غنچه‌ی دلتنگ گریبان بدرم

من از این شهر اگر برشکنم در شکنم
من از این کوی اگر برگذرم درگذرم

بی‌خود و بی‌دل و بی‌یار برون از شیراز
میروم وز سر حسرت به قفا مینگرم

قوت دست ندارم چو عنان میگیرم
خبر از پای ندارم که زمین می‌سپرم

این چنین زار که امروز منم در غم عشق
قول ناصح نکند چاره و پند پدرم

ای عبید این سفری نیست که من میخواهم
میکشد دهر به زنجیر قضا و قدرم

نازی عزیزم دل من هم برات خیلی تنگ شده.متاسفم که زیاد بهت سر نمی زنم.کلا یک کم از وبلاگ بازی هام کم کرده ام که به کارهای زندگی ام برسم! اما دلیل نمیشه که دوستان عزیزم را فراموش کنم.بخصوص کسانی که همیشه نظرات عالیشون را با من در میان گذاشته اند.مثل تو
شاد باشی

Homesick for the land I don't feel stranger in. for the streets I used to walk. for the feeling of being secured by the people who love you and you love them.
