A poem about finally coming home

Home Today

I hold a candle to the flame

And hear the wind

Whisper my name

I'm coming home-

I'm coming home today.

I've been out and about

Running out

of patience and time

Until it all came to end.

Now I'm coming home-

I'm coming home today.

At last,

I'll finally get to relax,

Kick back my feet,

Have my favorite thing to eat,

Push all my worries away.

Because at long long last,

I'm coming home-

I'm coming home today.

I'll fade into the black,

Hold onto all I lack,

And take the longest nap.

I'm coming home,

I'm coming home today.

I've been gone awhile,

Now it's time to smile,

Because I'm finally free.

I no longer have to hide,

Pretend that I'm fine,

Disguise the one that is me.

At last,

I'm coming home-

I'm coming home today.
