Home - a poem



My heart is torn betwixt two places

And yet I cannot go

The path once traveled

Lies in wait

And beckons me back home

But here I find the worlds not there

And there the things not here

So as I live another day

My heart goes to and fro

I'll brave a path that winds and bends

To distances not taken

And find my place in lives now shared

In values not yet shaken

So onward to this home I lack

I stay another day

Knowing that when time has come

My other place awaits
