I ran across this poem from 2011, and since it's Sunday, thought I would share. If you've enjoyed reading the few poems I've posted, please let me know and I will share more often. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this one as it's one of my favorites. :)

God bless and have a wonderful Sunday.

~~~ GOING HOME ~~~

There's a subtle sound falling on my ears,
I feel it's breath as it speaks.
It comes from the wind that blows through the trees,
and the ripples and waves of the creeks.
It's in the raindrops, in each leaf that falls,
in the flowers and dew of the 'morn.
It's in the birds' wings, and the rays of the sun;
it's in each new babe that is born.
It beckons me, "Come!" It's calling my name;
it's voice so tender and sweet.
"Come home," it whispers, "I'm waiting for you.
There's others I want you to meet."
My time is near, my race I have run.
There's no sorrow, no regrets in my heart.
Just memories of life, some laughter, some tears,
I'll take with me when once I depart.
