Words That Bring Comfort

I had this hanging on my wall wherever we lived - and I still do - it always brought comfort to me because my husband travelled at times and this is the way I felt when he came home:

"I hear your footsteps down the hall,

You are home again, and safe.

All the burdens of the day are

lightened -

and all the night noises

are music to my ears."

Very nice, Claire! I love it, even though my husband rarely travels!

Teresa said...

Hmmm...might just have to print that out and hang it myself! Thanks!

Claire said...

Kuckie - I also liked to read this when some of my daughters were out past curfew and didn't know where they were - I'm not naming names!!!
Teresa - I was really thinking of you when I was writing this out -
