“The Last Mile Home”
After driving all day long,
and spending time confined in car,
when finally on your last, long mile,
it seems to take the longest while.
Excitement at arrival, yes,
although you haven’t gotten there yet.
but clearly, you can make out where,
the town has change, but is still the same.
it’s home, despite where else you’ve been,
It is the place where you began,
no matter what the terrain has been,
you worry not that you’ll fit in.
