No fragrance is there sweeter

than the dinner awaiting

the travler’s return.


No feeling is there more pleasant

than the warmth of your own hearth

glowing with your family’s love.


No sight is there more blessed

than the faces of your loved ones

shining with welcome when their eyes

greet your face again.


And when you stand in possession of these treasures,

where-so-ever you find them,


It is then you have come home.
