I'm almost home,
no matter how far I roam,
I'm almost home… with you.
It's a long road I've traveled down,
and its end is near in sight.
I've soldiered on many a shore,
and never gave up the fight.
But freedom is a lonely cause.
And I never got it right.
So many times I took that road,
but, never saw the light.
You were always on my mind,
when through my fears I wasted.
Years went by and I don't know why,
those bitter tears I tasted.
Watched them die and don't know why,
it wasn't me they wanted.
Hellfire deep and on the heap,
all humanity's fears I taunted.
The end is almost near now,
I see it coming around the bend.
of war and all I fear,
It's coming to an end.
I'll see you in my dreams tonight,
I'll see you to the end.
I'll see you through the flashbacks,
I'll see you again.
I don't know when, but I'll see you again.
I'll see you again... and again... and again...
I’m almost home.

|Ron, I know you as a man of diverse abilities -- but song writer and lyricist I had not wholly considered -- if you compose music too, go to it and publish this wonderful song -- it has much potential -- it reminds me of something Kris Kristofferson would write --peace and love my friend -- Jon Michael|

|Would've made a great July 4th post--definitely country/rock, all Mary Chapin Carpenter but with a man's voice (and she had a 90's tune called "Almost Home" I often sang Karaoke. Not about war though--this would strike "home" with a lot of young men today...|

|This is top-notch lyric, Ron, I love this song. I hope someone picks it up and runs with it, providing you with a few $ to line your wallet in the process.
