It has been too long since I have returned. I didn’t mean to be gone so long, but the days are long – even if the years are short.

I know you wait. Patiently. Longingly. As I go about my days, weeks, months, and years – you stand there, nearly unchanging, for my return. I long for you too. The feeling of home, your loving embrace. You think I don’t miss you, but I do more than you’ll ever know.

It doesn’t matter how far I have been from this place, when I walk under the loving arms of this tree, the mill, beside the house…I know I am home.



Thanks to Priceless Joy for hosting the 62nd week at Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers.

Would you like to add yours, or read others?

  1. Beautifully written and heart felt. This piece brims with emotion. It is wonderful to have a place if home to go back to but sometimes I think we should go back alittlr more because people are our home and they only stay as long as their time allows.
