Back from surgery

the place to be is home

where comfort reigns

in family and familiarity

home to who I was

and who I still want to be

my former self

reclaiming normalcy

it seems like an eternity

time slips away in small dark rooms

that hold only strangers and

the slow ticks of a clock

hours blend into one endless night

of doubt and discouragement

yet the light at the end

is the coming home

where all of me is greeted by

who I was before

and those held dear

provide comfort and recovery

for my scarred body and soul

safe now in my surroundings

happy to be home.

The cuddles, the girls, the home-cooked food, the cuddles and d. did I mention the cuddles!


The e.cuddles from distant shores
from my home to yours!

Remember - to adapt a certain song:
The stars shine bright
As well they might
Deep in the heart of Texas !! 😌
