Song - My Way Home
When I was 4 or 5 years old, Dad took my brother Richard and I to visit Mom in the hospital. I had never been is a hospital large or small and this one was huge. I had also never been in an elevator. When we arrived at Mom's floor the door opened, Dad and Richard got off the elevator and I followed them. But before I was completely off the door started to close. This startled me and I backed up onto the elevator and the doors finished closing. Of course the elevator kept going up, this time with me unaccompanied. And this time when the doors opened I hurried to get off, not realizing that Dad and Richard were on a different floor. Finding myself alone, I started to cry. Some kind soul tried to comfort me, but I was lost and I was very afraid. Of course the doors soon opened and there was Dad! What a feeling to have been lost (and in my mind hopelessly) and then to have been found. And this event was the seed for "My Way Home".
