They say that all paths lead to Rome,
well maybe that is so
The city of hearts and history
where mystery is always in the know

Its a place where I always go to sit
in my dreams when troubles gain
as it is a place that has so much more knowledge
than me in the paths well worn grain

The thought of Spanish Steps
can always set me free
because I know that thinking back to being there
That this is a big world and I'm not alone not just me

Trevi fountain coins,
take me back there a million times
no matter what each day brings
Rome seems to solve the crimes

All can be going wrong in the world
but it is a city that exists with such story
that it helps to make me believe
that something will always be retained in glory

Being in Rome is a city alive
it has ears and eyes and can breath
It has lived through so many stories
Of love and heartbreak and wreath

Yet it still goes on surviving
and prooves to me I can too
And it is a place I share a special bond
and a friendship with you

I thank this city for reminding me
at the end of the day we're not alone
and I thank you for being my friend
And that my path will continue like the road to Rome

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The city is my friend
  • Cons:Hot walking tours on 45 degree days
  • In a nutshell:With me and the world for an eternity, the city itself lives
