My beloved birth country, oh, Vietnam
An endearing place I was born
I've returned after three decades
Hugging you, my Motherland, I adorn
Unforgettable childhood I have rediscovered
On my first trip home to Saigon
New view of life being reflected
God Bless my homeland that once was war-torn...

Vietnam, I had long yearned to come home
I am touched by your warmth for me
There is faith within my soul
Celebrating my spiritual river that comes home to sea...

Dear Papas San,

Welcome Home, the depth of the word can be felt far away across the Pacific Ocean to the South China Sea.

I have come home to Vietnam after all, 30 years since the fall of Saigon, Tet 2006. With the MIA bracelet on my wrist, I was with you coming home on this side. And there was a sense of being complete. Please allow me to share...
