home sweet home

sunset #4 - bonding



whenever i am lonely and feeling all alone
i think of your sunrise which warms my heart and soul
across the golden meadow and lush of evergreen
i dreamt of your mountain high and cool cascade of spring

i've been away from you for far too long
missed lots of summer, its laughter and joy
among the countless beauty i always yearn to see
is your sunset by the bay that bestow fond memories

i longed for that moment to meet friends again
brother, sisters and a mother so dear
to see their faces lit up with a smile
whenever i come to visit once in a while

one day i shall retrace my way to you again
against thousand miles, amidst countless faces
in your bosom i shall rest and embrace you anew
i will be back to be with you, home sweet home again

p.s. my daughter, ysabelle, was beside me while i was doing some editing on this poem. she read it and choose the picture - from the hubby's works - that will go along with the poem. it was the photograph of me and her taken by the hubby against the backdrop of an enchanting sunset.

  3. Very touching photo and poem. So many people live far from loved ones these days and can not visit as often as they'd like.

  7. Girlash, na homesick naman ako! Like you, I have fond memories of the bay too! Include Luneta park as well -hahaha! We were frequently in the park when we were kids, esp on weekends -may baon na pancit and bbq! Kaka-miss. I miss my mom and sister a lot!

    I join you in saying, someday, we will retrace our steps back home! :)

  9. Its a song i can't think of Its not "Home Sweet Home" by Motley Crue, or "Sweet Home Alabama", it has a very distinctive guitar sound around when it says "home sweet home" that reminds me of like a strutting rooster or something.
