You Can Go Home Again...

Good morning friends, I've missed you.  I am now in my home in Auburn, NY, my hometown.  It is so good to be here!

I can come home again
  @Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart

I have always heard it said
  You can't go home again.
But I am pleased to tell you, 
  You CAN come home again!

The streets of my hometown, 
Are still the same to me,
The sidewalks leading to downtown
Or anywhere else I choose to be.

My town is full of history
With homes of famous people
And churches are still standing 
With towering bell towers and steeple.

I have missed you sweet place of my birth
I longed to return to you, my roots, my worth.
I feel closer to my Bill again,
Remembering our youth as we were then.

I am finding peace and calmness here
Thank you Lord for bringing me here.
Whatever time I have left on earth,
I choose to spend it in the town of my birth.
