Though I was away for many years
Thoughts of home was never far away
As even I knew through my homesick tears
That I was destined to return one day

The journey home has been a long one for me
But alas I am back where I belong
Surrounded by my friends and family
Never again shall I roam.

Sometimes a part of growing up
Means exploring and seeing for oneself what's there
Then you realize you have all you need
At home where everyone cares.

Though I do not regret the things I have saw
The places I have been shall always bring a smile
But home is where my heart truly calls
Happily I walk that extra mile
