How many nights must I wait for the sound
of your footsteps falling on familiar ground?
And how many stars must I count
’till another sun comes up and brings the hope that you’ve been found?
‘Cause it’s been one whole year since duty called your name
and you kissed your newborn daughter and your only son.
You said time would go by fast
by October you’d be home with us at last
’cause the war would soon be won.
Come on home, I feel winter coming on
and I need you here to help us see it through.
Come on home, supper’s cooking on the stove.
Did you know we always set a place for you?
Every night we always set a place for you…
Come on Home, by Susannah Clifford Blachly.
You can listen to this song right on her website.
I hope everyone is with the ones they love this holiday season.
