Home, sweet home

Home, sweet home
All I ever dream for and beyond
Heart pounding, pulse rising
Contentment overwhelming the being

A sense of peace
The wonder of believing
that dreams do come true
The astonishment of seeing
that they really do

Once again I’m a small child
with wide open eyes
sparkling and shining like two stars
on the open sky of my happy face

A free spirit, a dreamer, a believer
Devoid of past and future
Honoring the present
Enjoying the magic jiffy
Counting blessings
Accepting the good

Home, sweet home
It is nice to be home

Oh Gabriela,
This is so inviting, lovely and nostalgic.
Thank you!

I know that feeling your poem brings it back vividly for me .
A note. I guess you meant to write 'like two stars' where you have written 'like two starts'. MSWord auto spell can do that to you. :-)

The astonishment of seeing that they really do . . . how lovely this piece is!

You are so right in your appraisal of what being a child can be. Devoid of past and future . . .how true!

Your poem really resonates with me, Gabriela. I think to a large extent I never stopped being that child. Lovely.

What a sweet Magpie. I love these lines: "open eyes
sparkling and shining like two stars
on the open sky of my happy face>'

There really is no place like home, especially that of one's childhood. Nice magpie.
