HOME OF MY SOUL
Written by Paul Landis Delaune

Return again, return again;
Return to the home of your soul.

Return again, return again;
Return to the home of your soul.

Return to what you are;
Return to who you are;
Return to where you are born and re-born againÖ

     This song has special significance to me, for West Palm Beach is not only where I was
born, but itís where I was re-born as well. Because I was born here and our family used to
vacation here  over the years when my dad was in the Air Force, West Palm Beach has
always held a special place in my heart, though I have only lived here for a total of six years.

     Four separate times in my life, between the ages of 16 and 38, I lived in the Port St.
Lucie/Fort  Pierce area in St. Lucie County, which is a one-hour drive north of West
Palm Beach.  During  my residence in St. Lucie County, almost all of the TV stations and
news came out of Palm Beach County.  In that time, West Palm Beach was always
like a golden city of light just over the horizon beyond eyesight.  Thatís how special
this area has always seemed to me.


     In my present life I have been re-born three times.  Once when I was 16, again when I was 29,
and once more when I was 39.  Each of these re-births or major shifts in perception, whether
forced on me out of necessity or out of a personal desire for growth, have involved an
expansion of my peace of mind.  I suppose I may experience future re-births in this life before
I make my passage into the arms of eternity.  The thought of strengthening my faith,
learning to trust more, & deepening my peace of mind is more appealing to me than mere
words can say.

Return again, return again;
Return to the home of your soul.

Return again, return again;
Return to the home of your soul.

Return to what you are;
Return to who you are;
Return to where you are born and re-born again.

 Not only have I returned to where I was born and re-born again, I have
returned to the home of my soul.
