Strolling along - the city sidewalk,
I feel at awe, with such a peaceful flow - of travel.
Those I meet, will pause and smile,
Then soothe my soul, with gentle talk.
This fe’lin within, is so hard - to unravel,
Is this the land - where I was raised?
What fills this day, with such enchantment?
I feel as though - I should give praise.
This fe’lin - has left me with an - air of bemusement.
Ev’n the young, - seem so at ease - in - their way.
This must be the beginning, of a brand new era.
From where, did all these answers arrive,
Which set these souls at play?
Tell me Lord! For I too, must be a part of this endeavor
YES! - Y ES! - JAILER, - I am awake!
To toil again! - Through another day.
This aching in my heart is wrought! - For my soul’s sake.
Please! - do not let me sleep tonight! -to dream, - once more, -
Of this land, ….. SO…... far…... away.
