Wishing You Home

My heart searches relentlessly
to find you in each day.
I close my eyes and reach for you
in spirit, far away.

Gathering leaves of memory,
I hold them to the light
in hopes of capturing the you
now absent from my sight.

I focus on an image
I might somehow keep and touch,
but all my yearning cannot raise
the one I need so much.

For you are missing limb, lost vision,
errant fond farewell.
You are the dream that got away,
the tale too deep to tell.

And I am left here on my own,
with pain I cannot hide,
wishing I could wish you home,
beckoning you inside.
