Long before we met

I already knew it to be true

Home would always be with you.

Your eyes sink into me in a way

I’ve only ever felt

When looking at a body of water.

Your laugh like a lullaby

Something that was sung to me a million times

Before I was aware.

The warmth of your embrace

Reminiscent of the warmth of the fireplace 

I can remember every detail of.

It all resonates as familiar 

Even though it’s brand new

Because home was always with you.
