If dying means going back to happy times, for some, maybe its better than living. If the ultimate "home" is heaven where we are reunited with our lost loved ones, and if dying takes you home, this old homeless man would rather be in that home of happy memories. The world is just too hard for him now. He wants the home of his youth with all of the joys it fills his senses. Fresh cobbler, summer breezes, and fresh mowed hay are huge sensory images!
