Oh how I longed for you.
As the days became weeks, then months-
Eyes closed, I envisioned the softness of your touch;
the warmth of your embrace.
I inhaled, recalling how inviting-
I overflowed with excitement,
anticipating your arrival.
Could it be?
I draw nigh.
Is that singing I hear?
Your melody is the sound of birds serenading.
Draw me near.
Warm me with your embrace;
cool me with your breeze.
Oh how I waited for you in the cold;
waiting for your warmth to melt the ice.
The cold brutal months, they held me captive-
against my will.
But alas, you are here!
Ahh… the warmth of your embrace
I welcome you home,
