My Home

"for when I'm with you, I'm home"

At the long day's end,
I hasten to that place of peace
far from the world's hectic pace,
and it's with eagerness
 I make my way to that place of grace,
for it's there that I can be
totally at ease.

Those days when life has beat me down,
I know that I'll find solace
in your arms,
for love and concern we have for each other.
My home is "our home,"
and it's built on trust, -
the firmest of foundations.

Makes me think of a little village where all the lights are on in the little houses and everyone is warm and safe. And no one is homeless. :( Sorry, just too many people suffering in this world.
