“My Homeland” Poem – وطني

English below…

تدري يا وطني

كم أنا مشتاق

راجعين يا غالي

كي ننسيك العذاب

الغربة ذبحتني

هجرانك مرمرني

اشتقت لترابك

ولمة أصحابي بديارك

آه.. يا وطني

لو تدري آهات قلبي

كم تعبت من كثر الصراخ

ولكن رغم كل هذا

راجعين يا وطني

عبير العيد

Dear my homeland, do you know?

Do you know how much I miss you?

My Dear, we are coming back

In order to make you forget the torment

Alienation is killing me

Desertion makes me suffering

I missed your soil

Oh… My homeland You don’t know the pains of my heart

How much I am tired of shouting

But despite all of this

We will come back to you
