Poetry Train

Where Home Lies

I walk alone
Searching for a place
Wishing for a home
Safe and strong.

Winds beat me.
Suns burn me.
I’m looking for shelter
Cool and quiet.

With one touch,
You soothe me.
I see
The deep honest truth.

No matter the places
Our lives take us
You are
Where home lies.

    I think its good to write touching stuff once in a while. Though I seem to write the dark stuff (poems) better and more often. 🙂

    Really touching, TA. You do tender so very well.

    SO nice, T.A.! Especially loved the final stanza:
    “No matter the places
    Our lives take us
    You are
    Where home lies.”
    Can’t get to a more perfect place in life than that.

    I think this is one of my favorite pictures. And the poem is one I’m going to use in my third Home book. As something Derek writes for Max. 😉
