I left my heart in Rome

I'm back at home now
but I ain't really here you see
cause I left my heart in Rome
I left it there
on it's own wish

I had no choice
I had to pay
for all the magic
Rome shared with me
so I left
my heart in Rome
I left it there
as a small fee
for all these wonders
and this beauty
this ancient city
showed to me

I left a piece
on spanish stairs
another piece
on Ponte Sisto
I saw it jump
out of my chest
and run along
the yellow Tibre

And now I'm back at home
but I ain't really here you see
cause I left my heart in Rome
I left it there
unconciously

I hear it calling
me from Trastevere
where it's been wandering
back and forth
It says it could
stay there forever
and still it wouldn't
be enough

But I, I'm back at home
but I ain't really here you see
cause I left my heart in Rome
I left it where
it's pleased to be

I see it bathing
in the fountain
the greatest one
on Trevi's square.
I'm far from there
but I can hear it whisper
it says it'll wait
for me right there

While I, I'm back at home now
but I ain't really here you see
cause I left my heart in Rome
I left it where
it wants to be

So beautiful and so passionate is the imagery you have used in the poem about the Imperial City of Rome that it can push back anyone's heart to nice and soothing memories of days spent in a city, memorable because you had filled it up with your love and passion.

A memorable attempt at reliving the days and happy nights is validated in terms of words you have used in this poem, of praise and of the recognition of the self happily expressed in Rome. In a word, this is wonderful.
