home…

It’s not poetry but it’s pretty close…so I’m counting this for my Poetry Tuesday entry…

I’ve been working off and on over the last year or so (as funds have allowed) on a music project called The Glass Factory. This is a rough demo version of one of those songs. I wrote this because my husband had been traveling like crazy and we had gotten into this weird rhythm. Things were working but we were missing each other and not really able to take time to connect.

HOME
It’s hard to say
having spoken to the empty chair
I’m empty too
being empty to the open air
always wonder when you’ll be right there

I don’t say
never say enough to know you’re missed
I never show
Never show you all the absent gifts
I hope you never think
we’re fine like this

so breathe deep
until you’re home
we’re complete
when you’re home
so breathe deep
until you’re home
come home
come on home

I’m running through
All the things I know I’m meant to do
I wonder too
What you’re doing in the afternoon
I hope you see
I know I’m missing too

from miles away
talking to yourself on empty planes
you’re burning fuel
Never stopping, always changing lanes
I hope you never think you’re fine like this

So breathe deep
Until you’re home
There’s relief
When you’re home
So breathe deep
Until you’re home
So come home
Come on home
