Back Home

Look who managed to find his own way back home. 

When your mom dies
The world goes a little topsy turvy.
You have to figure out
How to lay your own life aside
And go home
To celebrate her life.

...all the complications
...the unexpected costs
...and a ferocious cold

Cross the country and deal with
...rental car snafus
...delayed and disconnected flights
...and your bag that got lost in Chicago.

But when all is said and done
And you're back home again
With a heart full of memories
You just know
That everything
Is going to be alright.


  1. Sorry to hear of your loss Diane. It's never easy when it's family or a close friend...or maybe both. Bless you as you, grieve, remember, process and help others do the same.

    1. Thank you, Anonymous person, for your wisdom and care. Wish I knew who you are.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about your mom! Let me know when you get back


Please comment...I'd love to hear from you!
