Back In My Father's Arms - Poem by Juliana Longthorne
I ran from home that night,
When the sky turned grey,
And the house shook.
I ran to the fields and beyond.
I slept in the grassland among the weeds.
I drank from the river by the trees.
I awoke to the sounds of crickets.
I returned home the next day.
I missed my family and my friends.
I missed my room and comfy bed.
I wept in my fathers arms,
Sorry that I never said good-bye.
And I was no longer alone.
I was no longer free.
And though I enjoyed my liberty,
I glowed in the cries he wept for me.
I stayed home that night.
The sky was blue,
And the house was still.
A cloud lifted off my shoulders.
