Take Me Home KKD

Take Me Home

Oh the gentle tugging
at this old heart over the years.
Gets stronger with each passing day
to the point of bringing joyful tears

For so long I did not know
the source of my half full heart
The path that lays before me
leads back to my very start

The journey I'm about to embark
upon a road so familiar to me
Yes the very one I left upon
that will now set my heart free

With each passing mile
I know my memories will flow
They will dance upon my heart
as they did many years ago

The beauty of this land
your breath it will quickly steal
For me it is this place
that holds the me that's real

This land of my roots
for years has beckoned me back
Walking these streets
is what my life does lack

As a child these streets
I've walked so many miles
This town in which I lived
Now brings such Heart felt smiles

Rarely could you walk
and not greet a friend
Here is where my heart yearns
until my time ends

On these country roads
among the memories I will roam
My precious Savior I pray
you guide me safely back home.

To Louisa County Virginia.

My Childhood Home

And it only took me a year to realize
you just can't go back home.
People and places change as I sadly
discovered I no longer belonged there.
With in five years of arriving in Virginia
I gratefully returned to Florida...

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
