Home Visit!

The craziest, busiest, most hectic day
Could only be, too infrequently
When I arrive back “home”
Surrounded by friends and family

There are so many people to see
So many loved faces to greet
Cities and homes and shopping malls
All the places I used to frequent!

Rush around, can’t get enough
Make a list of who I need to meet
Coffee here and visit there
Travelling between two cities fair
(Jozi and Pretoria)

It is too much for husband dear
Too many people!
As many people as she would have words
No! Please let me stay at home

At home in Sydney, you go alone!
Yes, I’ll go alone, and take the minions too
They can run around with me!
Introduce them to another life

And amongst all this excitement
Flying here and driving there
I turned the Big Four Oh and so I did
And to my surprise, and to my Delight

My dear darling friends
Whom I have not seen in quite a while
Surprised me with a surprise I did not expect
This beautiful cake, left me with no words to say
(Doesn’t happen often)

It went too fast, the days flew by
Not one day, but twenty repeat
Resurface to a life now dead
Will have to do

Until I resurface again
