thoughts from my mind to yours

My Home In the Stars


I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…


For they hold the stories,

my grandma told me,

the walks on the beach,

with the family,

and the moment,

when my heart,

first took flight.


I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…


For when I lose sight,

of where I am,

they comfort me,

like they comforted my ancestors,

eons before I was born,

guiding them with light.


I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…


For their infinite beauty,

keeps me grounded,

no matter how high I fly,

reminding me who I am,

and where I come from,

as I sail across the sky.


I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night.

  4. Ohh Neha, that is just wonderful…my home too:) xxx

  5. Memories brought back to me. Thank you. 🙂

  6. This is lovely. My son always tells me that when he is away and I miss him to look up at the stars because he always looks up to knowing we are always looking at the same ones. 🙂 my home is where my boys are and when they are not with me, they are looking at the stars, looking for me and I am looking for them.
