Special Place

As the mighty river flows
onward to the sea,
Taking people out
and bringing people in,
It shapes the city's soul-
"Come on home to me!"
Running through our veins,
Willing us to win.

The city's heart is beating
in each and every breast.
It calls when we are far away,
it will not let us rest.

When times are bad
and sometimes words are hard to say,
Its people pull together
To get you through the day.

With history at every corner,
And memories in every space,
The world should know our secret;
This is a special place.
