You Feel Like Home To Me

by Sandy M. Humphrey

Once upon a heartbeat
I felt the flow of your life’s rhythm into mine
My cheek pressed against your chest
An echo of forever murmuring beneath the surface
I could curve into the crook of your arm
Finding warmth and comfort as our limbs enter twined
Drifting into slumber with dreams of hope
Dancing through night to greet us at morning’s first light
How is it someone could be so beautifully familiar
Yet so new and different at the same time
You felt like home to me
Not one I had ever known but the one I longed to know
In your smile I sought the promise of tomorrow

Tomorrow became today and all to oft
We are into the fray and I am not sure why or how
Winter cold the chill greets us these days
Painting our world with fogs of gray and confusion
Yet even with low visibility I see a hint of promise
When something breaks through the bleak exterior
Causing a spark of humor which evokes a smile
Losing my tendency to overanalyze and yours to simplify
Staying in a moment where all that matters is what is
Clarity can be found eye to eye
Listen only to what I say in this moment so pristine
I will whisper quietly and clearly
“You feel like home to me still and you always will”

"Staying in a moment where all that matters is what is"...if we did this more often, wouldn't the world be easier to take? Thanks for this!
