Donít Forget Your Home

Before you leave my side today
To travel somewhere far away,
Listen first to what I say-
Please donít forget your home.
I always knew it must be so-
The day would come - time goes not slow;
Listen well before you go-
Please donít forget your home.

Though you should travel on the sea
That takes you far away from me,
Itís Godís own plan, it has to be,
But donít forget your home;
Perhaps youíll stay upon the land,
Whateíer you do, Iíll understand,
Before you leave, give me your hand,
And donít forget your home.

I cradled you when you were small,
I cared for you, I gave my all;
Time has passed, youíve grown so tall,
But donít forget your home;
A parentís love will follow you,
Always faithful, loyal, true;
And anytime youíre feeling blue,
Please donít forget your home.
