Finally Home

 

Janelle Leek

 

Youíre finally home
Gone from our hearth so long
Safe home in our arms

 

Youíre finally home
How many didnít make it?
How many families donít share our joy

 

So close yet still so far away
I saw you back on a plane the other day
Taking you to places unknown

 

I know youíre still home
If not here in town
When will I see you again?

 

Dedicated to Shaun Brasington, US Army, Iraq Veteran
