"What a wonderful world" from one place to 'nother
A memory flashes past on gently plucked string
Taken back, aback with emotion
A native moment 'mongst most foreign a time
Familiarity that's family when there's no one else you know
And contentment struck in every chord
Floating smiles past tired eyes: Past lives that feel so real.
Each noteful moment itself is multiplied
Hope now squared, welling in each eye
Homely tones of yesterday's love
Seep through my skin to calm the storm
My fears cooled by tears, wept in only okayness
A deep breath to drink those final bars
Before the wonderful world again is less.
