“When Will You Come Home?”

“When Will You Come Home?”

By:  Garland Davis

 

From the cold of Korean Winters

To the heat of the Australian Outback

And the boats to Grande Island,

That we rode long ago;

From Osaka’s majestic palace.

To the Bullet Train north

A glimpse of Fuji-san on a chilly morning

Topped with shining polar snow

 

Over many years of sailing

Over triumphs and failures

From the gutters of Subic City

To the temples of Thailand

On the far Hong Kong hilltops,

And the wild Indian Ocean,

Always calling me home.

 

Across the years and over the seas,

I hear the East calling;

“When will you come home?

When will you come home?”

Again.

And Again.
