As I lay beside you
Already sound asleep;
Press my hand against your back
I can feel every heartbeat.
Had been longing so long;
I have finally made it home
Somewhere my head is at ease
In your house, all is quiet and calm.
I have heard the noises of the world
Privileged to see countries I did not even dream of;
Each leaving an indelible print,
God blessed me with more than I deserve.
For this reason alone, I never forget
The place where the journey began
I am one that will follow the sun
But wherever I go, I remember where I am from.
I make it a point to return to you;
And what I learn in our time apart
Means the world only once I am back,
For home to me will always be your heart.
