More Than Just A Home

She sits outside this empty house,
Remembering memories made with her spouse,
Daydreams and memories come to light,
Then suddenly reality starts to bite.

This house is not hers anymore,
It's just an empty building with a front door,
A collection of windows, bricks and mortar,
But to her it's where she grew up as someone's daughter.

It's where she spent her yesterdays and younger years,
In there she smiled and shed lots of tears,
It's where she molded her life into today,
It's a place she comes to let her memories play.

It's the place she last saw her mother's face,
The last hug they shared, the last embrace,
The last time they held eachother's hand,
What it means to her, only she can understand.

Sitting outside with a heavy heart,
This is her stories beginning, this was her start,
As she starts up the engine and drives away,
Tears fill her eyes, it's where her heart will stay.

Vicki Wroe, 26 (C)
