    Home is her and him

    Home is where there is always a voice, always someone laughing, listening

    Home is where we smell sweet sleepy magnolias and the red, rosey, ripe tomatoes

    Home is new

    Home is the place where they slept and they woke up

    Home is where they walked and ran, jumped and never stopped singing

    Home is where she sits on the bright white carpet and watches TV, wishing

    Home is there and then here the next day, it is where we are breathing

    Home is where he runs so fast that his 3 foot  body can’t keep up, where he falls, where i pick him back up

    Home is here with me, with you and you

    Home is where we jump so high on that old trampoline, dreaming

    Home is where the pasta is ready

    Home is where our rooms are messy

    Home is that place where  the tall wall of  bamboo whistles, but she can’t yet

    Where he cries and she yells and I laugh and we all smile

    I know home is different

    I know we are ok now

    I know we are still breathing, we have to keep breathing

    I know that we are home now

    Home is her and him

    Home is me, wherever that may be.
