When you return

When you return
To the old village
In its awake, in its pebbles
Say my greetings as well
Where I spent my years
In its dust, in its greens
In its shadows, in its heat

When you return
To the old land,
In its mountains, in its deserts
Where I travelled to find
You and myself,
Say my greetings as well
In its hunger, in its elation
In its despair, in its wilderness

When you return
Say my greetings as well
Where I belong,
In its good, in its bad
In its wrongs, in its rights!
