Home

When the red stones
Turn pink
And the sky a blush
When the roads
Seem a little shorter

That is when you know
I shall be home

When the night
Embraces the evening
Gently from behind

When the moon
Strokes the scene
With its light

That’s when you know

I shall be home

When the candles you have lit
Will burn once more

When the flowers on the stone
Bloom to life so prose

That’s when you know

I shall be home….

-Azra Rahman
