Poetry- Home Again

Updated on June 3, 2010

Home Again

Tepid waters

Prodigal daughters

returning to the nest

after you sent them out

into the world

and said to

try your best

Like shipwrecked sailors

they seek your favor

once again

and flatter you

with compliments

You are not just

a parent

you are a

best friend

 They say they

need some help

to get out of this bind

and know they can

depend on you

when help is

hard to find

 A more true friend

does not exist

anywhere on earth

You've been there

for them

in their corner

ever since their birth
