I have finally arrived
to the crackling of the fireplace
to the snowy beach view
to the smile strung on mom's face
to the place I once so well knew.
4 years away in 3 different places
will sure distort your view of home
Becoming comfortable in new spaces
but always with a thin barrier of unknown.
Yet, in my Home
i am allowed to just be
a judgement free-zone
without any explanation of me.
A place of unconditional-ness
that I can return to without end.
Have I finally arrived,
or have I never left you?
Sure I've left the fireplace
and the beach view.
But I feel you in other spaces
and see glimpses in other faces.
I know you in my boyfriends arms,
in the late night laughs with friends,
in the sunset on Mississippi farms,
in the Gallo Pinto I ate in Nicaragua without end.
Where I sense love without condition,
There you are.
But for now,
It is good to be home!
