She Calls Me Home

She Calls Me Home… At days long end Left on troubles shore When I just know I can't take anymore When the last light Of hope is gone She calls me home She calls me home When my thoughts Are racing round And I can't find A friend in this town When every door Has turned out wrong She calls me home She calls me home She calls me home To her embrace Wipes the tears From my tortured face Calms my soul Til the demons are gone And with her sweet voice She calls me home When the dark Won't give up light When the wrong Outscores the right When the noise Outdoes the song She calls me home She calls me home When the clouds Won't seem to break And the sky Just seems to ache And the sun's Completely gone She calls me home She calls me home She calls me home To her embrace Wipes the tears From my tortured face Calms my soul Til the demons are gone And with her sweet voice She calls me home

Thank you very much, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Where are you "heading out" to? How appropriate the read would be if you were heading to see your mom. Thanks again for the positive comment and good luck and Godspeed with your travels.

Such a deep and moving poem. I can feel my soul being called home. Anyone lost will be able to relate to this. I actually want to be the person calling others home.
