Will it ever be found?

When your racing heart cries for a moment of solace

When the emerging pain enveloped as thoughts fill your mind

Home, is the place you want to run to

When your shoulders fall dropping the weight they’ve been carrying

When your arms subconsciously stretch wanting someone to hold you

Home, is the people you wish were near you

When you close your eyes at the end of a long day

When you picture the place you feel most at ease in

Home, is the place your mind takes you to

Sometimes in the form of bricks

Sometimes in the form of dreams

Sometimes in the form of people

Home is as rare as the horizon that stretches in the distance
