Alphabe Thursday T is for Tenho amor … I love

October 1, 2015

Tenho amor a minha terra

Quando eu estou longe dela

Fico triste que de noite

Eu durmo e sonho com ela

Felicidade completa

Só tenho encontrada nela


I love my land

When I’m away from it

If am sad at night

I sleep and dream about her

And find complete happiness



I agree with the poet; I love my homeland and enjoy going home, when I have been away.  My daughter lives in Brazil and smiles at the adage ‘you can take the girl out ‘England’ but you cannot take England out of the girl’ I expect this applies to everyone who leaves their home whatever the reason.   

She looks forward to parcels from home as much for the smells of home as the gifts.

    I agree. I’ve learned to love these mountains even though it isn’t where I was born. I’d miss them if I ever left.

    The Mama left her homeland over 65 years ago, but she still dreams of it and it makes her happy. 🙂
