After years away, coasts and oceans apart,
You will return to the place from which you ran.
Your thoughts have never been far from it
Though the replacements have been spectacular.
You will fall in love, build a home, and take care
Of your parents. Life will be love and all is complete.
As you pull off the covers to turn on the coffee
Sober realizations. Most dreams never come true
And there’s no going home. It no longer exists.
I’m late leaving for the presentation.
