The Traveler (English)


The traveler was an old friend

We go way back – Kazakhstan, Minneapolis and Joburg

We met in Hamburg after all these years

Had Dinner on Reeperbahn


After the time had come to say good-bye

On a Bridge at Hafen-City

He turned around and went straight to the Harbour

Where his boat was lying at anchor.




Farewell to an old friend


I have never seen him again

Nor do I expect to do so.


Last thing I heard,

That was in October  ’17

Was that he had set sail for Gibraltar

Back to where he was born

And then heading for Africa…


(Hafen City, Hamburg in March 2018)
