Past the Point of No Return

I keep being asked why I'm returning
It's the love and memory's I've felt
The culture I feel I belong
Southern hospitality that reaches the heart

I've had many friends
and memories I'll never forget
It's time to make new ones
on this return

The hope I have
as little as it is
The joy I once felt
to experience again

It's my chance to start over 
all the people are the same
I'm sure of that
I'm not worried at all

I think what I fear most 
is going and never wanting to leave
I don't want to feel torn between worlds
as I once was

I would live every day to be somewhere else
Now I have different goals 
I don't want to tear them down
but join the two

This is the chance to see
where I can start my future
Start my family
and everything falling right into place

It's time for me to pack my bags
Fly to my destination
Put a smile on my face
Breathe, and embrace the experience
