Be Home Soon


The rain falls,

drops like tears

on the glass.

The light fades,

yields to a night

without stars.


You will be home soon


The air cools,

makes the house shift,

creak and moan.

An owl hoots

somewhere near.

A wild sound.


You will be home soon.


The clock ticks,

marking time

in endless seconds.

The day breaks,

grey and empty.

The rain still falls.


Please come home soon.

This poem was written many years ago for someone whose lover did not come home that night. They never came home again.
