just to hold you
to be held

in youth our wanting takes us away from ourselves ... with age we return home.

beautifully inspired
beautifully felt
beautifully lived
beautifully written

Thank you Devika, Frank & Laure for your comments.

Laure I agree completely that with age we experience a kind of home-coming after a journey we were perhaps never fully aware that we had undertaken.
