Finally at Home I'll Be

Updated on March 3, 2014
Source

When a heart leaves a current place

It belongs where it has landed.

Meant to grow more and embrace

What this life has expanded.


Times may come and then they go,

But they’ll never be forgotten.

Just like the rushing river will ever flow

The case in point begotten.


And when that new horizon changes

The scenery also becomes anew.

The book adapts with new pages

A wider road is pushing through.


These things are never meant for some,

Others just can’t see afar.

I was meant to fly and succumb

To another’s waiting heart.


And when I soar on those wings of purpose

I am guided by my destiny.

There are gambols and larks on the surface

And each I clearly see.


But when I arrive in your land,

Your window is the first I see.

Your wish is my command.

And finally at home I’ll be.

      What I meant to say Deb was, "...searching for the right one." I do not know how I came up with 'over'

      There's actually quite a few in there, Mel. Check 'em out if you have a chance. I even did an epic, which involved a crow.

      You're welcome, Alicia. I haven't really done poetry for quite some time, at least seriously.

      And by the way, just like Billy said earlier, I liked your usage of metaphors as well.

      Thanks for all your support, Cris. I'm an early riser, so I'll be right there with you. Thanks for all the shares and things. No, I don't do Pinterest, because they claim ownership on everything.

      How did you know what's in my heart Deb? I feel like this is me expressing my soul only you've written it so beautifully. :) So meaningful...to breathe, to be one with nature, surrender to what is and to appreciate home...wherever home is.

      I've just regained a wonderful sense of beauty and peace with your hub and perfect timing just before I go to bed. Early morning duty at the airport tomorrow. :) Fly high Deb!

      Love from the sky~

      Up++ and sharing! Can't pin it. I'll bookmark instead.
