I Will Always Return Home to You

If life is a series of journeys,
station to station and port to port,
I swear to you here and now
I will always return home to you.
If life is one dance to the next,
with waltzes and rhumbas and tangos and reels,
I may have kicked up my heels with
this one and that one,
but yours will be
the last name on my card.
If each day’s a cocktail or highball or shot,
no matter which gin joint I happen to be in,
the last toast I make at closing
will always be to you.
If life is just the memories we save
from the moments we’ve dreamed,
then you can rest assured:
every dream I’ve dreamed has been of your kiss.
