I Miss Home

I miss home
I miss the days when
I was going to the office.
I miss the days when
I was walking on the
Peaceful street of Bamyan.

I miss Band e Amir and Buddha
Qazan and the mountain called Baba

I miss home, I miss friends
I miss all those nights
When I had the chance
To look at the sky full of stars

I miss peaceful Bamyan
Its beauty, its people
I miss!

Indeed, you do not understand
The value of something
Unless you lose it!

I wish it was just a dream
And everything was well.
I wish I had a chance to
Go back to those good days
And then my life stops there.
