Home away from Home!

I first set foot in the land I had known

The land of which tounge I spoke

The moment felt as if

I was meeting with an old pen pal I had never seen

The air was fresh a lil cold, the time had just changed ilona told

I moved into the pre war building on berliner strasse

A young girl I was entering into a new phase

I was soon ‘vertraut’ in this strange city

Where the past, present and the future met

I relished the hefeweizen until the last drop was left

That was my way of observing lent

I never felt here like a foreigner

In fact my voice echoed ‘ich bin (ein) Berliner’!
