There’s no place like home

©2013 by Jon Gutmacher
Walking the tundra
city glows
ever closer
thru the snows

Far horizon
thru the land
walk the couple
hand in hand

Ah, the struggle
thru the snow
walking far
they both do go

Closer, closer
in the night
storm clouds gather
on the right

Hear the wolves
they howl low
as we push
through deepening snow

Onward ever
to the light
each step we take
we know we’re right

Stop the shiver
no food to eat
just keep on moving
each step repeat

I see it now!
I see the gates!
I see the watchmen!
though, t’is so late

And then a trumpet
a flare of light
they’ve seen us now
will all be right?

And still we struggle
in deepening snow
I see them coming
Yes, soon we’ll know

And there upon a horse
so great
my father, King
with love, no hate

Extends his hand
embraces two
I feel his love
all this I knew

And together we go
on horses fair
with blankets new
to city, where

We start anew
amongst great friends
whose love for us
did never end

And there we stay
until we die
our families close
we wonder why

We managed to cross that land of snow
but came home safe
Yes, this I know

There never was a place so far
that made me feel
The way
we are

For here we are
in this place called home
we’re finally safe
no need to roam

And so the story
came to pass
we both came home
At last
At last
