On the other side of the world


In the middle of September

Summer is fleeting

Colorful leaves are coming

And I’m missing someone on the other side of the world

It is just another short poem that was written by me on September a couple of years ago, when I was studying in Karlskrona, Sweden. I shared it on Facebook and have just found it this morning while looking through my timeline.

Living and studying abroad is my dream. It was not difficult for me to leave home, but I had a hard time dealing with homesickness and loneliness when I was abroad. For people from a tropical country like me, seeing the season changes vividly was something that I expected, but what I did not expect was while enjoying new experience in life, I did miss my family and friends who were on the other side of the world.

Have you ever had a similar experience like missing home while traveling or living abroad? Share your experience with me in the comment!
