14.Good to be home. Back in my bed tonight Makes me feel good- I can hear the rain On the skylight While beside you I am warm. When the kids wake me At some unearthly hour & demand pancakes Made as only I can I follow them Down the stairs Thinking It's good to be home To walk on my own ground Where, for better and for worse, I am known. I open the kitchen door & the dog goes out, barking I smell the weather & from the clouds I see the day ahead. I have the rare pleasure Of having built the life I want to lead. It's good to be home.
