Coming Home
by Alyssa Anne Vitry

You said you'd be coming home.
On the paper,
	I traced your words.
In my heart,
	I felt your arms around me.

This letter, three days old,
Roared through my ears 
	like the plane in which you came.
I could sense your smile when you landed.

Before I could awake-
Before the sun's fingers touched my feet,
	You were there.
Standing like a shadow against the dawn,
	Watching my body rise and fall with every breath.

Without a word you came to my side.
Without a word,
	I waited for you to come.
Sinking next to me on the soft sheets,
	My skin like silk,
You placed a rose on my pillow.

It's blood tinted petals smoothed my cheek.
Your soft, warm fingers soothed my soul.
And I awoke.
Happier to greet the day than ever before.

With the golden glow pouring about us,
	I felt the tenderness of your kiss.
Heaven.
