I've been away
so very long
I'm euphoric to say
I'm finally going home

Home to where
my heart feels free
a familiar place
where I can be me

Living abroad
has been a quest
but now its time
to leave it behind

The time has come
to return
and take with me
what I've learned

There are those
who I will miss
Forgive me
for leaving
without a kiss

My decision
comes not
with regret
I will not

But truth
cannot hide
my eyes are
opened wide

living in strife
I am leaving
to start
a new life
