Like a lover missing me
the place I once called home
enacts its vibrational pull
and there’s a backward twist
to my forward gait.
It stands in a mist that never disappears,
in the clouds joined one unto the other,
or beneath the earth in a glorious cavern
or just somewhere unimaginable.
I cannot draw the outlines
or sketch the inner chambers
but there’s a bearing down
of truth and happiness.
But truth, yes, truth, so intermingled
with this land of signs and wonders
remains for you and me and them
So like a lover missing me
home waits until the time is right
to say finally and truthfully
“Come unto me and I will give you rest”.
