Home Enough - Poem by Edmund V. Strolis

Where my feet will find me.
A corner for my boots to stand.
That's home enough for me.
So long as your shoes lay nearby.

The scene from our windows change.
Smiling, We leave our past behind.
Setting sights for 'wherever' road.
What a nice trip your hand in mine.

We do not let the miles own us
Our journey will reveal us soon.
What we lose in moments apart.
We know is only the first act.

No never will I say a dress rehearsal.
We both know we don't live that way.
You squeeze and dance toward the moment.
Thrilled when the music is right for you.


In the corner boots and shoes they lay.
Together they make a loving home.
Where tomorrow they will wander.
Is a question for another day.

    We are always enriched in some way whatever the outcome

    The message was true even if the love was not......................new home, new world, new possibilities.

    Loved the imagery and originality of defining the home. Home is a place for shelter and warmth to be shared with a loved one. Your poem portrayed it wonderfully. Thank you for sharing. Many thanks for your recent comment too. Appreciate it very much. (Report) Reply

    The idea of a place to set your boots with someone else's is super romantic in a natural, comfortable, authentic way. What a lucky couple! :) (Report) Reply

    A lovely poem, Edmund. A home is only a place to take off your boots, unless it is shared. Thanks (Report) Reply

    Sometimes it seems that the simplest sentiments are often the most profound.
