A Way From Home

Don’t look into my eyes or you will see

How long I’ve been gone

That I can’t remember where home is

 

Don’t read me

I am not finished

And my words are wrong

 

Don’t dig me up

I am not buried

I can still breathe

 

Don’t point me the way

My eyes will wander

I will get lost

 

I do not know

If you will wait

 

I do not know

What will be left

 

I do not know

If I will remember when I see it

 

But I promise

 

The tide will bring me back

 

And the wind will point in your direction

 

You will see me take those last few steps to your door

 

I will breathe the air I know and have no more miles to tread alone

 

The hours I missed will be gone and nothing

 

When I make it home
