........There is something to be said ,
about the word ........home.
Like that mystery you just ,
can;t solve.

Miles away and something .
'm not quite sure pulls ,
at my heart strings.
Family and friends,
your favorite place ,
on that couch,
and a million other  things.

Driving closer , 
a smile starts ,
at the corner of my mouth,
a grin ,of pure glee 
of a deranged mad man. 
A frightening picture , 
a person too long gone ,
can't you see.

It's here, all a person ,
could ever  wish,
Home ,my haven,
my place,
Too long gone ,
have I been from this ,

At last, home once more,
these  thoughts,
the eyes of emerald green,
 Please promise ,
never wake me,
if this is a mere dream .
