Home why did you abandon me?
The words of my soul whisper.
Calling across the endless waters,
reflecting glass hiding healing love.

Home where are you?
The arms of my heart outstretched.
Reaching through the grey mist,
a blanket hiding hopeful belonging.

Home why are you silent?
The trembling of my body echoes.
Begging in the darkness of night,
a cold touch hiding warm comfort.

This shore is not your shores.
This home is not my home.
This love not our love.
This belonging not belonging at all.

Return to me
Allow me to return
