Reedy River, Greenville SC by Ann Marquette

Years later I still remember
Standing in your kitchen
I was tired from a long drive
And visit with friend in nursing home

You took me in your arms
You held me close
A strange thing happened
I felt completely at home
There in your arms

Years later I found the place
Where I really feel at home
And then I remembered
This city is where you lived

I remembered the strangeness
Of feeling at home in your arms
Then I smiled, realizing
It was only a sign
Of something wonderful to come

I thought it was you
I never felt that with anyone
So, I thought it was you

It wasn’t you that was home
It’s the city you lived
Where I feel at home

Thank you anyway.
