The comfort of home

Swift to the morning
but with comfort of home
the night has slip-slid away
and all of a sudden
(and too soon it seems)
I’m here at the start of the day

But I’m not too bothered
as I’m back from the road
and Obi is here at my side
It’s back to the norm
the familiar ‘here’
with a comfort I’d never deride

My Chair

There’s a place in my house where I sit
and, if I chose to lose myself I can
Be it with reading or writing
or music or game
Sometimes Obi joins me
as it is for him safe haven
when there is something loud downstairs
My little brown comfort blanket
snuggled up and sleeping
in my chair beside me

Heaven, waiting, sings

It’s peaceful here, these darkened rooms
this ward, this evening hour
A deepened sleep. Breath in, breath out
from this still fading flower

Autumn’s come to this long life
as here we sit and wait
knowing that the time is close
The hour now is late

Breath in, breath out. A comfort here
We listen and we hear
Feeling peaceful, resolute
there falls a passing tear

Earlier we shared a prayer
the five of us as one
on this an evening of a day
to one of us now come

Breath in, breath out. The comfort stays
yet, waiting in the wings
the loved ones who have passed before
as heaven, waiting, sings

At one with the sea

Came to the sea
at its beckon and call
Embraced by its welcoming arms
Knew solace and comfort
The promise it gave
that here I would come to no harm

Stood on the shingle
there with a smile
Looked to horizon out there
Where the sea met the sky
with a tear in my eye
at the beauty that it had to share

Knew peace in a moment
A palpable thing
Like the comforting warmth of the sun
The embrace of a friend
with never an end
And me and the sea here as one

Comforter

Music as comforter
enters my soul
Enlightens my mind
keeping me whole

Familiar this

Warming like sunshine

Home, where my heart is

in my safe haven
