One Way Come Home You Are My Backbone

Come home,
You are my backbone,
Travel light,
Home away from home,

When I touch down,
Feet running,
Angels writing distance,
Fly us higher,
Mogadishu to Jakarta,
Heart walking streets,
Minds racing,
Mombasa to Nairobi,
Count our blessings,
Sleeping on Central Park benches,
Writing Shakespearean sonnets,

No matter where we’re going,
We sing,

Come home,
You are my backbone,
Travel light,
Home away from home,

Music my desire,
Poetry my instrument,
Flying higher got my mind on fire,
Dreaming while hoping,
Crying while praying,
No matter where were walking,
Waking every morning next to one another,
Buying and selling,
Struggling night and day,
Rwanda suffering,
Night terrors have us pondering,

No matter where we’re going,
We sing,

Come home,
You are my backbone,
Travel light,
Home away from home,

Have you won and lost,
Been asked to cry river depths,
Walk under street-lights,
Craft future sights,
Lost in one another’s eyes,
Valued precious,
Night and day,
Millenniums ahead,
Dead presidents,
Crying tears,
Wishing light-years,

No matter where we’re going,
We sing,

Come home,
You are my backbone,
Travel light,
Home away from home…
