It was a relief to see you walk back home
Contrasted with the sadness of your leaving
You travelled the globe
Discovery was your thing.
But you were exhausted when I found you
“I want to dig my roots back in,” you said
“Enough is enough
I’ve had a lifetime’s worth.”
It was a journey of discovery
Principally about yourself
Finding out what makes you tick.
It was the best gift of all you know
Coming home to me.
