Back Home

I have you back at last.
I've missed you terribly and deeply
   While you were gone.
I've cleaned up everything,
   the house up and down is neat and clean.
Let me show you.
   See, I've scrubbed the kitchen floors clean.
   I've removed all the hospital stuff downstairs,
   Now we have our living room back.
   I've straighten up the bedroom just as you like it.
Remember when we moved in
And all the work we did to make it our home?

I'm glad you're home.
   Now I won't be so lonely.
Here I'll place you on the mantel
   Where you can keep an eye on things.
