Whispers of Home’s Timeless Embrace

Oh, how my heart longs to
rewind time’s relentless tour,
to live anew, savouring home’s
embrace a little more.
To roam the fields where youth’s
wild oats were once sown,
inhale deep the fragrant air of
the only land I’ve known.

To stroll again where my
forebears walked before,
each step upon the soil
that makes memories flood to the fore.
To lay upon the earth, beneath
skies of azure lore,
to cherish every grain of sand
along my land’s shore.

For in these wishes, whispered
soft to night’s serene,
is a yearning, a soul’s reflection in
time’s quiet stream.
Beneath the stars, in dreams
where our spirits soared,
I just wish to touch those
cherished days once more.
