Welcome Home


i lied in bed next to her, as her life
drained from her body
she was not wishing me goodbye
but was welcoming me home.

home into her heart, where i was
such a big part.
we shared hopes, dreams, memories
and joys beyond compare.
for alongside me she was always there.

together we smelled the roses
and looked up to the skies
seeing clouds forming shapes
and asking ourselves why?

a letter, a note, little things you wrote
a smile, a laughter, little things we did after.

i feel the warmth of your love
filling my every being
touching my soul
and giving me meaning.

now i know just what you meant
that we would never part.
for the truest gift in life is love
which stays within the heart.

    This one is really beautiful, I know I felt the same feeling with my dying mother. Both souls experiencing the love they had, are sharing and know it will carry on long after. I loved it (Report) Reply

    Louis my friend...when a poet writes from the heart they create such a magical feeling within the reader....you achieved that when you wrote the following


    i feel the warmth of your love
    filling my every being
    touching my soul
    and giving me meaning.



    That's the deepest love right there my friend....Excellently expressed 10 (Report) Reply

It is the hour when from the boughs

And gentle winds and waters near,
