Your music is a comfort,
Each song a dear, dear friend,
Every chance I get to hear it,
I welcome without end.
Your songs, they touch my heart,
And warm me through and through,
My words are not just platitudes,
But what I feel, is true.
So difficult it is,
to adequately describe,
Such healing that your music brings,
No doctor could prescribe.
So suffice it to say,
That no matter where I may roam,
When I hear your music play,
It’s just like coming home.
