Listen to poem:
My heart has found a home (Song version)

So many years alone-
my hearts without a home
Nights were filled with fear-
my heart shed a tear

My loneliness had grown-
my hearts without a home
my foolish heart has spent-
emotions paying rent


Chorus
My heart has found a home
no need for it to roam
Love has come my way
I know that it will stay
My heart has found a home
it's home is here with you
you are it's dwelling place
love shines upon your face
my heart has found a home


Since you came to me-
your love has set me free
I see love in your eyes-
your heart now beats with mine

Lonely days are gone-
our love will stay strong
Say you'll always stay-
I need you everyday


Chorus
My heart has found a home
no need for it to roam
Love has come my way
I know that it will stay
My heart has found a home
it's home is here with you
you are it's dwelling place
love shines upon your face
my heart has found a home

repeat chorus twice   fade to zero

John, knowing what I know of your circumstances and the beliefs we share, my heart was deeply touched by your lyrics. Having lost my heart twice, I now know to whom it belongs. Tenderly written and artfully sung.

Oh wow, how I wish I could play like you do . You have a very country type song here with awesome lyrics and tune. I spent several years trying to learn guitar in my 40's but when I pick up the guitar today I can barely remember all those songs I had learned to play . I think if I'd started young, that would have been better. Keep up your great work, John. Maybe one day we will see your work on a record label! (has that ever happened for you yet?)
