Coming Home

Coming Home:

They come to me in dreams,
Those I love, but now sadly gone,
No words are said, there’s no need,
They are coming home.
Last night was a restless sleep,
Alone in the dark I stirred,
Got up and walking inside
My vision began to blur.
You were there, but I knew you weren’t,
So real, how I wanted it to be,
You raised your head in greeting,
And wagged your tail at me.
Curled up where I usually sit,
Something you’d never before done,
It seemed right and I let you sleep,
Those last two years were gone.
Your picture looked down from above,
Your eyes bright, coat shiny, no pain,
My beautiful baby had come home,
My heart was complete again.
You came to me in a dream,
You were never that far away,
I returned to bed and slept,
You found your way home today.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
