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
