Lived stranded,
for far too long,

accepting,
all that came along

until I met you!

The moment I set eyes on you
is the only moment I’ve lived
in a long long time

A nice warm feeling it was,
and I was cold and numb

this far, I had nowhere to go
But now, I was finally home

A feeling like those
of revisiting old photos
like walking in the fields
you once did 
as a kid

Like the first touch, the first kiss,
like snow melting
on your skin

Nothing else mattered
because I knew I  had found
what my heart had longed for.

I was finally home.
