Welcoming Home
for D.B.A.

she has to pick herself up
what you must do when you’re travelling

she has to lift her own weight
and a few suitcases

she has to lift up, she has to lift off

to get home, she has to go
way up in the sky, high above clouds

so much more than I
faced with getting out of bed
and getting dressed to meet her

only I have so many more years to bear
so many more years to carry

traveling though is a lot to lift
to get up and go with, to go away
and to come home with

Lord, whatever the weight
or the wait, I pray, let it be light

how weightless light is
dark, unlike day, they think is heavy

day and night and life and love
what is the weight of these combined
