Homecoming

It's been a long and painful week
Denying her both calm and sleep,
Yet as she spies the setting sun
A hopeful smile begins to peep;
Because she's going home.


Her head is pounding ruthlessly,
A dozen troubles on her mind;
Her face is pale, her eyelids droop,
Her body's begging to unwind;
But at last
, she's home.

Each breath she takes lightens her load,
She feels the warmth push out the cold;
The creases on her face ease out,
Her hair hugs tight the pillow fold.
She cares not when she'll leave again,
Her eyes are shut, she dreams again;
Because, at last, she's home.

Big Thanks to the girl who inspired this :D
