Writing Streak Week 13 Day 1 - Home

June 22, 2020

Home.
I was just a child, so small,
when I first beheld you, the sprawl
of hills behind blooming daises, the call
of the lilting song of the river, how all
the sun's light streamed through the window, as the wall
of red brick and it's musky smell enthralled
me - I knew I'd fell in love.

Home. 
Beside me as I grew, the bricks there,
were a comfort through dark nights of frigid winter air,
You watched as my mother's eyes encased her faltered stare
and she rose to the gods that didn't answer my prayer.
You did not cry as I punched through your doors in despair,
Offering a solace greater than humans, you shared
equally in my every experience.

Home.
While my calloused fingers decay,
the edges of life's cloth begin to fray,
and though I fade slowly, day by day,
in this place of comfort I stay
to join the soil of this ground
that my infant feet once touched.

Home,
Through joy, anger and sorrow,
I stand on this land today and tomorrow.
Through delight, chaos and pain,
here I remain, tomorrow and today,
In the house that has held me tight
through storms and when touched by the sun's great light.
Though dreams and friends do come and go,
Here I hold strong and forever I'll know
that my heart rests in the place I call my own,
my sanctuary, my refuge,
my house, 
my home.

    Wow, i don't know what to say... this is so perfect! You totally mastered the rhyme here. The last lines just tied it all together in such a beautiful way.
    The overall feeling of safety and love I felt radiating through is just wonderful!
