I am Home.
With uncertainty, I turn left and I look up to the stair rail, there he was. My breath left my body as I locked eyes with his intense gaze. He came to the table. A flustered, confused energy. I studied him, observing the way he spoke, his body language unsure. He was the single most beautiful sight. In a room full of strangers, he stood tall. For nothing in the room mattered except him. Within my heart, I was there, instantly. I loved him once, an unsure, young love. But my heart was instantly full of admiration and familiarity. A love that never left but was placed deep within. A soul so familiar to mine. Like we’ve met before in a previous life. I spent the evening unable to relax, I wanted, needed to be near him. Leaving him, I embraced his hands with mine. Firm and sure with desire and want. Looking into his eyes, lips slowly moving with a delicate grace. From that moment, I knew I was never to let him go again. As we woke up in the morning, he held my arm firm “Please don’t leave". I placed my arms around him, without hesitation and with a new found clarity and confidence, I promised with a whispered “I will see you again soon". For his heart is with mine and I will cherish you with my love and admiration. The world has lead me back to you. I am home
