A Comforting Thing

I’d left old Kentucky for a while to roam, but now the roads call me, and I’m coming home. Just me and my pickup - we’re now headed to a chilled winter woodland, the cottage, and you. Those back roads keep calling. Old houses with gates I’m now driving past to where my darling waits. I see in the distance a comforting thing. Smoke drifts from your chimney as wind starts to sing. A down home cooked supper awaits me tonight then all-night sweet lovin’ near the warm firelight. Written by Andrea Dietrich on 10/12/13 in the genre of country music for the Groove It! Poetry contest of nette onclaud
