The Homecoming

Far into the distance
Past the rolling hills
I see a very faint figure
And I wonder what it is

As the seconds turn to minutes
This figure approaches me
Is it you? Is it you?
My heart beats fast and I can’t breath

As it walks a little closer
I am finally able to see his face
I try to remain calm
But then a grin comes upon my face

I can’t hold in my emotion
I run the rest of the way
For it is my love
He has come back
And I can’t find the words to say

I hug him oh so tightly
I don’t ever want to let go
For today I am a happy women
I’m happy because he has come home
