Come Home Again

Come Home Again

How is it, that a place 
I have never been before
Can feel so much like home?
The excitement and anticipation
Of arriving somewhere new
And at first view
I am overwhelmed by the feeling
Of recognition
That I have been here before
I know this place
I am come home again
Unremembering why I ever left

  1. I love this. It reads like the first kiss I shared with my Piano Man. It was returning home... after never having been.

  2. Fine capture, Lori. This happened to me, the first time I visited New Orleans. I know for certain that some previous me lived there.

    1. Some previous me had definitely been there before. I seemed to intuitively know my way around. The feeling of coming home to a place I had never been was surreal.

  3. Love this... I too know the joy of excitement in finding home where I've never been. Jamaica is one of those places.

  5. It reminds me of the line: "No matter where you go, there you are." Maybe you never left?
    This is a very interesting and lovely thought. Thank you, Lori

    1. Where once I was, there ever will I be. I hope that becomes an adage as well. :) But I do like the thought that I left a piece of myself there to remember me by.

  8. That describes my first visit to London... it felt like I knew every street, every building... and that was before internet. (now every place seems familiar)

  11. This makes me think of the day I started college. I was so ready for the next stage of life to begin. LOL, on that day I got re-acquainted with someone I knew from summer camps in high school. She'd later be my roommate and one of my best friends for life. I also met this shy guy who liked goofy comedies. I married him. :)
