When did I fall in love?
Perhaps it was when
The scent of salt and sea
Brushed against my skin
Like tear drops and falling rain
Washing away stolen regrets
With the feeling of home.

Would it linger for a while?
With the lavender and vanilla scented breeze,
The taste of warm bread
And the soft touch of a healing hand,
I hope and I pray to a billion stars
That home will stay.

I’ve found an unusual love
In the ocean and its blossoming fields
Where home holds my heart
And holds my fears.
With every changing tide and every lilac leaf,
How can I ever love anything else but here?
