After the rain, I walk alone, along soft footpaths
The sun warming my soul, healing the pain of the bitter storms
Following the long winding road that leads to a new tomorrow.
Home beckons from around the next bend.
Sanctuary of grace and peace
Dancing motes of sunlight reflect a joyous heart,
freed from bondage...
A soaring hawk, silently tracking my progress
Graceful symbol of freedom from the past
I have come through the other side of bitterness
into a place of loving peace
The weathered gate offers a loving welcome ..
For all who enter
Mullioned windows opened wide
embrace the soft breeze
and healing light
A place of love and laughter.
Earned through scouring years of pain
Treading softly on burnished oaken floors,
I find him waiting
Dozing by the fire, glasses slipped halfway down his beloved face
Softly I ease onto his lap, arms twined round his neck and whisper,...
Home now my beloved,
safe in your heart once again.
Our lined faces etched with lifes fingerprints,
crease with joy,
His mouth closes on mine with sudden need
On clean soft sheets..
he lies over me
Our hands twined,
eyes gazing into each other's souls,
he enters my liquid depths.. silently
We stay motionless..
We are home safe...,joined in silent rapture
My body trembles, arches against him
As he pours his warm seed into my pulsing body
We join in a long moment of blinding,searing oneness
Two souls one heart
Home at last,
in the late afternoons fading light
