The home that loves you

Go back to where you played.  Back to where your laughs still echo against the walls.  Go back to where you fell.   Back to where your tears still stain the floor.

Go back to where you read.  Back to where your childhood books are still cherished on the shelves.  Go back to where you collected treasures.  Back to where your childhood memories are still kept in boxes.

And if the ones that played with you to make you laugh.  Picked you up to wipe your tears.  Brought you books to read to you.  And created fond memories for you to go back to – year after year after year.

If they are still there.  Linger a while, and have a good visit, a good talk, and a good laugh.

For life always allows us time to love, so long as life is still around.

  1. I like this; and your other work too. This one is exactly what I did after many years away.

    • I’m glad you’re enjoying the pieces.
      We all need to return to our beginnings. It keeps us grounded throughout life.

      • jdgarner68, would you mind sharing your experience? You said you did this many years away, how did you feel?
