It's time...
My Horace will be coming home from Iraq soon.. tired, a hero, a good man for sure.. The danger he has been in, has been torture for me.. but I always believed and new that he was meant to come home, that I would grow old with him.. and now he comes, safe and whole, home to me


Patience has been a virtue
I have missed you
longed for you
Needed to see your face in my pressence
The essence of you has filled me

I have waited for the moment
Anxious to feel you near
I have cried a river of tears
Needing you
loving you

And now, I wait, knowing
You are on your way
The light that is you will shine on me soon
No more will I long for you
from afar

It is your homecoming
Soon you will be walking up to me
And I will have you in my arms
Never to let you go again
Welcoming you home to me

This is a nice welcome home a hero is to have longed through emotions that strain the soul...this is a welcome home that will give life to that very soul...of each other...

nice work...
