A Long Trip



A Long Trip


Anything had to be better
Than this place for me,
So I traveled the world
By land, air and sea.


Europe was beautiful
It’s castles, it’s people, it’s charm,
But something was still missing
So I had to move on.


Africa and Asia
Much beauty surrounded by hunger and strife,
Australia and South America
Wide open spaces, a lonely life.


Then one day I realized
Sitting and thinking all alone,
Time to pack my bags
And find the shortest road home.


Shortly after my return
To my little home town,
I knew this was the place
Where I would settle down.


I will visit other places
Both far and near,
But never again will I leave
The place, that my heart holds dear.

Hi Angi,

I've been away from home since 1975. Helena is my second home but deep in my heart, I've aways long to be home - Viet Nam - again.
