Home is Where the Heart is

Many years have gone by and I
Haven’t seen you
But in my dreams you are there
As if on cue
Mountains, rice fields, and waterfall
Always lovely
Mother, brothers and sisters too
All embrace me

For home is truly where I go
To find love and acceptance
Where my heart sweetly rejoices
And peace is given a chance
A fool am I notwithstanding
Always in search of what is there
That the world has to offer
But it seems they’re just air!
