Two metaphorical women live forever in my heart

New World, my wife with whom I share my dream

and Europe, my mother with whom I chose to part

out of young curious spirit, or maybe out of a whim.

By blood and soul in me a European I'll always be

a son a of millennium old town with an epic past

with air of ethnic sentiment as deep as a sea

and cultural heritage so profound and vast.

As I may listen to Chopin's romantic piano sounds

my heart takes me through streets of the old town

with knights on horsebacks envisioned all around

and a smell of those torches in the air to be found.

Yanked out from my soul's habitat and home

by a passion of a gypsy in search of the new

here I continue my predestined spiritual roam

with no loyalty to tell me what's the next to do.

By drifting from ourselves we never really move

warm embrace of mother no wife makes the same

memories of my childhood no adulthood can remove

so no place can match Europe, that old and noble dame.
