Home | A Poem

The smell of comfort wafted the home


It smelled like bread and good things to eat


It's scents were carried through the halls and rooms


And married to the sounds it found


Sounds of cries and a Mother's nurturing voice


Sounds of laughter and a Father's good humor


It wrapped around me like a gust of wind


I was lost in it's haze


Here, I felt


I felt the embrace of warmth and partiality.


It wrapped me in it's forgiveness and dignity.


It heard my weeps

It soothed me


Home had known fear, but it knew love far better


Home had known death, but it knew life far better


Home had known illness, but it knew strength far better


The world taunts us and proves its vastness to be cruel.


But here, within the timbers and walls of this fortress


It holds the songs we long for


The melodies haunt our journeys and the sweet sounds we follow home


Home


The destination to the journeys I've yet to take


H.Hensley
