Once in a While

Once in a while
when I feel alone
I’ll close my eyes
and picture home.
A mom that loves me
a dad who cares
a place where I belong
where I’ll always be theirs.
Where the sky is bright
The green grass grows
pink roses bloom
in neat little rows.
The sun is golden
birds sing in their nests
love is in the air
of this I know best.
No pain and no sorrow
all my smiles are real
I’m always at peace
all past wounds heal.
So I bring to your attention
what’s up with me some days
when you see me sometimes
behave in such odd ways.
Because once in a while
when I feel alone
I close my eyes
and picture home.
