I Long For Home

I can understand Crowe's character in Gladiator, in as much as he is ready after a career to stop battling and to return home to grow crops.  My gray hair tells me it's time.  The military life has meant more than twenty-five years away from my home.  When I finish my service and return home, it will be an emotional event.  I will certainly sing, hallelujah.
