I was very blessed this week to have my friends from out of town come stay with me for the end of the year and the beginning of this one. It’s rare that we find a group of people with whom we truly connect with, that understand us in a deep and intimate way, and I have to say that I am very lucky to have that in this group of companions. Although I was secretly hoping they wouldn’t leave, I knew they had to. This is my cry for them to come back home… to moi!
Come Back Home!:
I feel blessed to have had you here, even for a short time
It can’t take very long for you to return, I’ve planted seeds in your minds
Of running away to places where mountains and trees are easy to find
With beautiful people, smart minds, good times, and where you guys are all mine.
Bring it back in a different form, where you all return to stay
As unlikely as it were, I was hoping you would never bother to go away
This is where you all belong; we all know it, let’s not waste another day
Because while you’re in Calgary working, you could be in Vancouver to play
Now that you’ve gone, you have a large quarter of my heart
Bleeding down the road beside your travelling car
Come back, dear friends, we could all be a part
Of the happiness that our union has brought
“Responsibility”, bleh, such a term
But I suppose it’s the one thing that helps us to learn
So responsibly plan, to responsibly burn
The tires, that is on the road that you’ve earned
Please come back safely
I’ll be here waiting
With my hope never fading
And my love never failing.
Come back home!
