About the Poem

In Manslow's Hierarchy of basic needs, one element that is essential to life is security. Security is generally found in a place where one feels safe, or a home. A home can be with a person that one loves, a family that is caring, or even in a place that one finds a sanctuary in, (i.e., a forest or a mountain top). I found my home with someone that I have found a deep respect and love for. Whenever I am with this person I feel safe and never want to leave ... hopefully this person feels the same way... but you can never be certain, but the heart never lies.

Going Home

You can never go home,
That is what they say.
My response is just a smile,
I know I'll find my way.

Miles and miles to get there,
That is what I might have to do.
But it is all so simple,
My home is inside of you.

Nothing warms my heart,
Than the way you can.
My home, my sanctuary,
Is when you hold my hand.

Hold me in your arms,
until I fall asleep.
Dreams end as I begin to wake up,
You're gone, I'm weak.

Home is where the heart is,
My home is with you.
Since we aren't together,
What am I supposed to do?

I'll find my way back home.
