Treasure Island

Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

Coming Home.


Home is within the Self.
All voyage brings us there.
To be aware of welcome
We would have been sharing
Our love. Now departing
From distant shores we find
New ways toward the start
For home. Loth to leave behind
Adventure, yet singing
Of eternity, we find
Balance which joy in Self brings.
Homecoming then feels fine.

    Home is where your heart is, where little nick knacks dwell
    familiar things, a picture brings, mementoes cupboards swell
    its lovely to go on holiday, but towards the end
    you cannot wait to be back home, cos your home is like a friend (Report) Reply

But harder grows the more I her entreat?
