All of my happiness lies within this realm
My family
My friends
Those I once loved
Under the shade I sit and reflect
Feeling this light breeze
I can feel so out of touch at times
As if nothing mattered
The darkness swallows me whole
But I reach out for the light
I see my mother’s smile
Hear my sister’s laugh
Feel my dad’s hug
I reach for my brother’s strong hands
Home isn’t a place
It is people
Whether chosen or given
You four complete me
