We Are Home

When long-distance ends

By Kelsey ClareyPublished 2 years ago • 1 min read

I didn't know what to expect

When there were no longer screens

and distance between us.

When I could finally touch you,

finally kiss you,

finally lose myself in you.

I was afraid that we could

never live up to all of our

dreams and glorious expectations.

Afraid that we would be disappointed

and all we worked for these many years

would end before it even truly began.

But then I saw you.

And our eyes met,

and your arms went around me,

and I knew that we were home.

And nothing else could ever feel as right as this.
