Written for Rick Forest
Artist and Friend


You have been gone so long

I have been empty without you

I have been waiting for you.

 

I sense you are on the way

I stand strong and eager

I await your return.

 

I know the moment

Your feet step onto my porch

Your hand puts the key in my door

Your hand turns the knob

And then the moment

You step inside the heart of me

I know you are home.

 

You are my soul

Your loving hands made me

The way I am today

Your heart loves and cares for me.

 

I have missed you

Missed your footsteps

As you walk my floors

I waited to hold you

Safe and warm

Within my walls.

 

And now

You are Home.

 

Signed ~

Your house, Your Home
