Longing for the comforts of my past
Home, the place I hope to come back to at last.

Medium Poems

Long-awaited Homecoming
I’ve been away for far too long,
Roaming this world in search of a song
A tune that makes my heart feel free,
A rhythm that truly captures me.

But now I’m back, I’m finally here,
The place that’s always held me dear
It feels like I’ve been gone a day,
A fleeting moment that’s flown away.

My heart is full, my soul is glad,
To be surrounded by all I’ve had
The love, the laughter, the memories we share,
The comfort of knowing they’ll always be there.

So let us embrace, let us reunite,
Let us bask in the warmth of the night
For home is where the heart truly lives,
And in this moment, my heart forgives.

The Comfort of Home
There’s something special about coming home,
A feeling of comfort that’s all your own.
The familiarity of each creaky floorboard,
The sight of your bed that you’ve long adored.

It’s in the scent of your mom’s cooking,
The laughter and chatter that’s always looking
To envelope you, to take you in,
To remind you of where you began.

Home is where the memories become clearer,
Where the good times were, and the harder and dearer.
It’s where you can rest, and find peace in the night,
For home is where everything feels right.

The Joy of Homecoming
What a joy to come back to where it all started,
The place that’s always been so kind-hearted.
To see the streets that are so familiar,
To hear the voices that make life sweeter.

It’s the warmth of the welcome that feels like a hug,
The smiles of those who love you and bug
You with questions about where you’ve been,
The ones who’ve missed you, and never unfriended.

For the joy of homecoming is truly unique,
It’s a feeling that’s wholesome and clean.
One that rekindles the embers of old,
And reminds us of how we never grow cold.

So here’s to the joy of coming back home,
To the feeling of belonging that’s never alone.
For home is where love is always found,
And in its embrace, our hearts are unbound.

Long Poems

Returning Home

As the wheels touch down on familiar ground,
A wave of emotion threatens to drown
Memories of childhood, friends and familiar faces,
Each one a piece in the puzzle that places
Me back where I belong.

The airport’s chaos fades away
As I make my way to the exit, I pray
For a moment of peace to take it all in,
To appreciate this feeling, to let it begin
To fill me up, to make me whole.

And there it is, the sweet smell of home,
The sound of birds, familiar and loam
On the roads we used to bike and walk,
The homes with windows, the little park.
Everything here is part of me.

The streets are full of people, young and old,
People whose stories I’ve heard and told
People who I love, people I’ve missed,
People who will give me the perfect gift,
The gift of home, the gift of love.

I walk these streets with ease and grace,
Heart overflowing, a smile on my face
As I relive the memories, the moments we shared,
Those that remain vivid, those that have faded and faired
But now back home, they have come to life.

I am connected to this place, to these people,
To the experiences, the joys, the steeple
Of the church where we would gather and pray,
Often wondering what would happen someday?
And now, it has led me back here, to stay.

For this place is where I belong.
To the streets, the houses, the sidewalks long,
The fields, the hills, the river that flows.
This is the place where heartache goes,
Where love abounds, where I am home.
