Homeward, I am returning,

For in my heart lies yearning,

For a heart more discerning,

Something missing each morning.

Alone I wake shuddering,

Holding you I feel relief,

From a pain long suffering,

A momentary reprieve.

Just say it, say anything,

I’ll be there with a lone-word,

Something unseen tethering,

Guiding both of us homeward.
