Home is…


I am in the air.

I am neither here or there.

Home is where I´m headed.  Home is where I left.

Suspended somewhere in the clouds between my two homes;

The two places that hold my heart.

One holds the family that taught me to love;

The other the family God gifted to me and expanded my heart to love.

One family created me;

One family chose me.

Gravity is pulling and my heart feels torn.

Flying from one home to another.

Home is where I´m headed.

Home is where I left.

I am neither here or there.

I am in the air.
