When You Welcome Me - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

when i go to your place
do not welcome me
with flowers

not with a streamer
i am no
not a star of the show

the flowers are for the dead
and i am coming home

welcome me
like i am a nobody in your heart
like i am a new stranger
in your town

welcome me like i am a new beginning
that is how i want it

i am a beginning
i am alive
i still want to live by your side
