Took 4 years

It took a week to move
but 4 years to settle in

It took a few months to find friends,
but years to find those who stayed

It took 4 years at work,
to take on a new challenge

It took a lot of trips home,
and many hard flights back

It took patience,
and a lot of humility

and it took a great partner,
to call it home

But it was well worth it.
