Lyrics for my song 'Heading Home'

I write songs for my family - I have a new one I have the basic structure for ATM. No tune available really, as I only worked it out today. I am never great at lyrics so I could use some help with writing them - The story is: A guy (yep male) has been living on earth and will be ''Heading Home'' soon to wherever it is he originated.(yes another planet/star system - wherever (heaven if you like - but I want it to be more ambiguous than 'death') Notes I have about his time on earth include: Snakes & Ladders - Ups & Downs Monopoly - Winning & losing Roller Coasters - Helter Skelters Roll the dice and fall back down Winning & losing - part of the amusement Climb the highest mountain - it's cold up there (being alone sometimes) After his kids came along (joy/best time/etc.,) Grandkids next Now it's time to go. To Head back Home.

Additional info:
The vocals will only be used for demo purposes. Not for release.. . I'm an independent artist not affiliated with a record label. I've written melody, but need help writing lyrics. I'm not sure yet if I'd prefer ‘work for hire' or am open to sharing publishing. Can you quote for both situations please?.
