Fernweh  a German word = farsickness or an ache for the distance is the literal translation that fits myself.  It is not wanderlust as Google translates.  There is no English word.  Wanderlust =  Wandertrieb.   Always I am lost in Fernweh.







I do belong

I am home

I am here

I am present

I have family

There is Love

I am lost in Fernweh.

I am Fernweh,


Wherever I am.

In all the places

I have traveled,

This ache is

At home in me.
