Homesick for you…


I hugged him so tight,
when I arrived.

He laid his head against mine,
with a sigh.
How can I make you
feel better…

He shifted, slowly lifted his head
and looked at me
with a tired expression,
but he frowned slightly.

I held his cheeks
and just gazed into his eyes
quietly for a while.

I don’t know how sober
he was or wasn’t,
I didn’t ask.

But he was full of sadness and
surprise that I came.

He let out a small sigh slowly leaning
in closer to me,
his face softly pressed
against mine.

Without a word,
He shed a single tear, as if relieved,
That I was there.

Then, he fell asleep, right there,
in my arms.
