Wanting Home - Poem by Danny Speicher

Driving down this sad, darkened highway road
These trips don't get easier on the heart
With all its emotions soon to explode
I guess all I'm really wanting is home

Not a car on the road on this cloudy night
By myself and incredibly alone
My heart cries out to stop this inner fight
I guess all I'm really wanting is home

Where family and friends who gather 'round
Can have conversations without one sound
And the laughter makes the house feel so warm
And memories and stories are the norm
I guess all I'm really wanting is home

The clouds give way to twink'ling stars above
Remind me of her eyes twink'ling at me
And all I can think about is her love
I guess all I'm really wanting is home

Where family and friends who gather 'round
Can have conversations without one sound
And the laughter makes the house feel so warm
And memories and stories are the norm
I guess all I'm really wanting is home

As I round my house, the city lights shine
Shining brightly framing my final destination
And, although my house and city are fine
I guess all I'm really wanting is home

Where family and friends who gather 'round
Can have conversations without one sound
And the laughter makes the house feel so warm
And memories and stories are the norm
I guess all I'm really wanting is home

'Home is where your heart is', they always say
If true I've not been home since I've met her
And I'm anxiously counting down the days
I guess all I'm really wanting is home
