My Journey Home

I am hearing some voices,
But these are coming from the outside-
I just saw someone walk past me-
But it is a real person-
I believe I am awakening from
A journey to a different time-
But so far removed from reality
In this very moment, I remember nothing.
I am beginning to recall drifting off into
Another space in time-breathing deeply in and out
Until darkness overcame-
As if I were rapidly leaving this world
Or was I simply falling into a deep and sound sleep?
It feels as if I am awakening from a peaceful slumber and
I find myself sitting in a chair-in a room where
I can recall visiting some hour’s past-
Now I realize what has happened.
I hear a voice telling me ‘It is over now”
A bolt of lightening went through my brain
While I was seemingly millions of miles away-
Now I sit here alone, welcoming myself back to reality and
I foresee blue skies and the sun is high at noon,
Autumn leaves upon the trees outside are falling-
I can close my eyes and see the world as a beautiful place-
And when my eyes open I glance outside of the window
To see a gentle breeze rustling the leaves still on the trees
Orange, red, yellow and golden-
I have awakened from a tranquil voyage
A voyage that I know shall give me a special gift at
Another chance at life- walking on the trail near my home
Where deer roam freely and trees grow tall until they touch the sky-
Voices I heard that came from the inside shall take their rest and
Give me peace of mind while my heart bursts into song-
I believe that a magical current has brought me home to a better place-
Nights shall come and when the moon is full I shall wish upon a star-
To enlighten my pathway through veracity for always and
Every time that special bolt of lightening strikes it shall bring me closer to
Seeing this world as a safe and wondrous place. As I continue to walk forward-
Enchantment shall follow with every step I take – and I shall read hope
Into every falling leaf, that I have arrived home to the place of my fondest dreams.
