Gone too long

I have been gone for too long,

I have forgotten what it feels like to wake up to the sweet sounds of bird in my backyard and my mother’s voice asking what’s for breakfast

I have been gone for too long,

I miss my sister’s constant chatter about how tired she is and how she does nothing to change it

I have been gone for too long,

I miss their constant cat fights about what everyone is doing wrong

I have been gone for too long,

I miss the friendly neighborhood visits and gossips

I have been gone for too long,

I miss the quiet serene state of my compound with trees swaying left and right making that swoosh sound I love so much

I have been gone for too long,

I miss my mother’s tales about the distant cousin that has refused to visit since we no longer feed them honey and butter

I have been gone for too long,

I miss the everyday reminder of how praying and reading my bible is key because that’s the sword of Christianity

I have been gone for too long,

I miss my home

Perhaps it’s time to go back.
