·         Home
Where mother swaddles child.
Holds him in her arms.
Cries over his body.

You are where I live,
But cannot stay.

I could've sworn your trees whispered goodbye when I left.

You are the one place I want to be.
The one place I cannot be.

My blood seeps through your sand.
Aching to be Free.

We have the only long distance relationship
That has overcome walls of concrete
And guns of steel.

I carry pieces of you with me
On my key chain,
Around my wrist,
Your stitches are embroidered into the fabric of my being.

Even though I'm a thousand miles away,
I still feel your roots clutching me tightly.

I just want you to know,

I'm holding on too.
