My life did not begin here
Haven’t been here all that long
But home is what it feels like to me

I’m connected to this patch of earth
And the people whom I love here
A community of joy surrounds me in this place

There is music, dance and laughter
With some tears and sorrow too
Sharing life together makes it home for me

When I go away I miss it
While returning makes me smile
My life is rich and I am blessed to be here

I cannot say what home is
But I know one when I’m in it
My soul is filled to overflowing -- I am home!
