420 Home [24 September 2001]

she breathes
the air filling her lungs
filling her soul
she touches his hand
afraid of what lies ahead
yet anticipating it
with joy
he is hers
she his
all that matters in this crazy world
exhaling she releases all fears
of a life that includes him
alone for most of her years
always waiting for this day
when he would be there
to carry her through the hard times
to hold her when the darkness
seems too much to bear
now he is there
his smile in the morning
those sleepy eyes
she will go wherever he takes her
for where he is
she is home
