Coming Home

by Estevan C.

How simple my life is now that you are here
How I cherish each breath
How I crave the light and laughter you have brought me
I have fallen in love without taking a step
Fallen into the sweetest of dreams
How I hope no one wakes me
The simplest gesture wraps itself around my heart where
I will hold it forever
Each time, we say goodbye, a part of me weeps though
I know it’s not forever
To my aching soul, it is an eternity
I see my happiness shine in your eyes
Every time you hold my hand, my heart skips a beat
How sweet life is to be yours
How meaningless life is without you
They know nothing of loneliness before you
of the empty tears I cried day after day
How did you do it I ask myself
How did you vanish the fear, the darkness?
You’ve made me see that nothing is that bad
That I am strong and worthy of happiness
You have saved me from myself
Everyday, I wake up and smile
knowing you are waiting for me knowing you can’t wait to see me
How would I go on if you were not here to hold me up,
to bless me with your love and light
How I am glad you have found me
My life is now complete,
I’m home.
