"Closer to Home" as written by and Carrie Newcomer....
This is a lovely place that is hard to leave
And there is a loneliness that we will always grieve
So give what you can and only take what you need
And hope you heart will know what you eyes can't see
When I was a child I still thought like a child
And I still feel like a child sometimes

But I'm learning the farthe3st I'll travel each day
Is to the edge of my blindness, and then a little more ways
We will meet again I'm sure

Someday when our sorrow s are cured
And we'll walk like friends, embrace again
Much closer to home we'll be then

The world will build walls without any doors
And it is easy to forget what we are climbing them for
But I saw an angel with hope on it's face saying
"There's good work to do, and there is no time to waste"

We are closer to home, we are closer to home
We are closer to home that we know
I felt your should in your fingertips
And I have held your hand and brushed them to my lips
And I saw the child that I birthed in my pain
And when she opened her eyes there were your eyes again
