It is said that there's no place like home,
So how does one know how far to roam?
Time braced you to so many places,
But only one will linger in your traces.

Whether it is faith that brings you back,
Or your choice to get back on the track,
No matter how far you may travel,
The country roads are still filled with gravel.

Life's paths you've chosen perceptively,
And accepted every day so graciously.
Appreciative are we all to have you,
Back among us to hold and honor you.

So with this verse you are welcomed back,
By many who are glad you chose this track.
May your days ahead be filled with hope,
To last forever and never be broke!

Chicago was once your hometown,
Prior to your travel to a faraway town.
The "Windy City" has whisked you back,
To be with those who are welcoming you back!

Dedicated to a very special lady in my life,
who has been like a second mother to me.
Thank you for coming back to us, Aunt Rosie
