Obituary

"Finally Home"

The sun is rising, peeking above the water.
The day is dawning as I sit here on the shore.
Waves are breaking; I hear the sea gulls calling.
Nature’s glory is too beautiful to ignore.
A salty breeze is coming off the ocean.
I love the feeling of the sea mist on my skin.
It’s so great to be back on the island.
Finally home, I’ll never roam again.

Finally home, to the land of my dreams.
Finally home, I’ve been gone too long it seems.
The salt, the sand, the palm trees
Make up just who I am.
Finally home, I’ll never roam again.

Suits and ties seem so damned restraining.
Shorts and flip flops are the attire of the day.
Headlines and deadlines are soulfully too draining.
I’m back on the island and here I’m going to stay.
Phones and faxes make way for my sailboard.
I’ll cast a line to catch something with a fin.
I sold it all, moved back to the island.
Finally home, I’ll never roam again.

Finally home, to the land of my dreams.
Finally home, I’ve been gone too long it seems.
The salt, the sand, the palm trees
Make up just who I am.
Finally home, I’ll never roam again.

The simple pleasures of this world are all we really need
A peaceful existence void of stress and greed

Finally home, to the land of my dreams.
Finally home, I’ve been gone too long it seems.
The salt, the sand, the palm trees
Make up just who I am.
Finally home, I’ll never roam again.
