Welcome Home

I woke up today greeted by rain
Yet my heart is filled with light
My friend
My sweet friend
She has returned

She heard my call
Read my words
Felt my sadness 

Others added their voices
Comforted me
Expressed love for her
There is grace within this place
Amongst The thorns
At times it can drain
Be a source of pain
Yet it lifts us once again

We humans have our faults
Limitation
He hurt one another
Sisters friends and brothers
Yet we are more
Much more
Complicated
Simple
Confused
Bruised
Abused
Renewed
We are better together
Within the storms we weather

Today is a day of celebration
Filled with elation
After contemplation
Becca has returned
So on my face is a smile
I let out a sigh

I never wanted to say goodbye

    Richard....so glad that Becca is back. It is the care and concern shown in these poems for her that you have written that was a deciding factor, that and the love she has felt from others here on the SOUP. It is great to have a second family here...one that cares. :) Beautiful write.....She has a lovely poem to treasure...A gift of one's soul embodied in eternal words.

    Rick your poems are absolutely beautifully written.You have an amazing talent. I do not come here often anymore since I am dealing with my grief in different ways at the moment. I stopped in and read your poems to Becca and i was touched by your concern and hurt. She really is a great person just going through some things at the moment. I was sad too and missed her beautiful writings. Hugs my friend
