BFF# 140 My Hometown

I grew up in the country, away from all the fun,
where all I saw were corn fields and the bright sun.

No big city, burg or town,
I was such a klutz and always falling down.

As a young girl, I sat in my room,
while I looked out the window and wished for a groom.

I dreamed of the day when he would take me away,
from the wide open spaces and tall stacks of hay.

Years later when that wish finally came true,
I felt really sad and I was so blue.

Driving past my brick house on West Road,
I held my wedding gown that I had lovingly sewed.

Today I live very far from my hometown,
in a little city where we’ve finally settled down.

I am happy to report that I am no longer sad,
‘cause as long as I am with him, I am very glad.

And no matter where we decide to roam,
I will always think that with him, I am home.
