Stranger in My Home

On days like this

Nights when I cannot sleep

Wandering from room to room

Searching …

For something …

Anything that is familiar

I am a stranger in my home

Memories follow me

like ghosts

Floating through my mind

Confusing me …

Haunting me …

Keeping me awake …

There is nothing familiar

Nothing left that I remember

Only a house with emptiness

yet filled with things

things I don’t need

And …

Cannot release

Who have I become?

Does it matter?

There is only me

in my solitude

But …

alone …

never lonely …

Finding My Way Home

From time to time

I find myself lost

Not knowing where

to turn next

Not knowing what

to do next

Not knowing who

I can trust …

I can turn to …

 

In those times

I have to find

ME…

I have to get

to know myself…

I have to decide

which way is

Home …

Or …

Look for a new one

Create a new one

Because …

I can never go back…

I can only go

FORWARD …

Yearning…

Yearning…

The house at the

end of the lane

calls to me

A light coming

through the back

door reminds me

of home…

but — a home I

have never known

 

I feel them sitting

there in the kitchen

sharing their day…

watching TV…

laughing…

winding down for

the night as I  pass

by yet again feeling

drawn … yet, am

not allowed to enter

a pull to my soul

a longing for something…

something just out

of my reach

but something

I need…

I want…

The family I

have never had

Nor will ever have…

Spirit…

We are all parts
of the Universe
Moonbeams…
Stardust…
Ancient beings
and Spirits

Our lives are spent
looking for others…
That special soul
the one that
feels like home

The lucky ones
find at least one
other home
The Blesses fine
more than one

Going Home

Her Last few days
Going Home…
Hospice…
With her family…
 
Treasure this time
my Dears…
Ease her out with
dignity and grace
 
Give her the 
very best of 
each of you
your last times
And…
A peaceful
Going Home…

Coming Home

Escape was all
she could think
Driving all night 
through pouring
rain that kept
the windshield
fogged mixing 
with her tears
 
She didn’t know
where she was…
where she was going…
the road sang beneath
her tires accompanied
with drums of raindrops
 
Just around the bend…
a rise in the road and
dawn splitting through
the last of the clouds
She saw a neon sigh
 
Flashing…
     gas…
guitars…
     gas…
guitars…
 
A sign in a 
sign in a sign…
She needed gas
and it was time again
to have a guitar
 
Stopping…
she felt like she
was coming home…
