Why have you come back

Written by: Chokri Omri

Warm is the breeze and cold is the weather
Life is short and time is good only for sailing.

O brother, why have you kept the boat in the harbor?
Day into day and night over night, we are waiting …
Safe is the boat in the shore but is it built to stay?
No way, the journey is taken either by night or day.
Keep going, sailor, there is no need to wail and cry.
We are born in this life to struggle and die for an other life.

Warm is the breeze and cold is the weather
Life is short and time is good only for sailing.
