are you home?

just touch my cheeks with the back of your hands
and i will know
you are home
i have been waiting for all of three centuries
for your arrival
and now,
my eyes are finally heavy with sleep
the eyelids are falling earthwards
to clasp the grip
of reality
but don't let that fret you
just cup my face in your hands
and i will know
you are there by my side
nestle my heavy head in your bosom
and sing a song of sweetness
till my heart blooms
till i spread my wings and ruffle my feathers
from the window of my world
i will fly away,
you by my side
