When I was a child,
my homesickness was a small stamp,
linking Mum at the other end and me this.
When I've grown up,
I remained homesick,
but it became a ticket by which I sailed to and from my bride at the other end.
Then homesickness took the shape of a grave,
Mum inside of it and me outside.
Now I'm still homesick,
but it is a narrow strait,
separating me on this side and the mainland on the other.
