Destination Home

***written for the draw: One Way Ticket***

Destination: Home

My destination gateway
Closer now
Rolling in slowly from the taxiway
I can’t believe I made it

Alone in my row of bucket seats
Shaking hands
Trembling knees
I gather my things and stand to my feet

Racing heart
A sigh of relief
My longest journey to date
I am just a gate away

Running off the plane
Down the long hall
I collapse in your warm embrace
I am home
