Coming Home

The second I walk through the door,
I crave the thing I’ve smelled before.

The smell I smell makes my senses spike.
I know it’s something I more than like.

I smell sweet, yummy chocolate.
A baked treat I truly like a lot.

And the smell is so very comforting
Coming home makes me want to sing.

What is that melodious sound I hear?
It’s a sound I know that is always near.

The sound I hear makes my senses spike.
It’s something that I more than like.

I hear the lovely sound of singing.
It’s as the sound of soft bells ringing.

And the sound brings me such delight.
Coming home- my mother is a beautiful sight.

Oh, this is a sight I love to see.
My mother is baking happily.

The sight I see makes my senses spike.
It’s something that I more than like.

She’s graceful as she moves around.
She smiles and turns when she hears my sound.

My mother looks extremely gleeful.
Coming home makes me feel so peaceful.

I feel my mother’s gentle squeeze.
Her soft kiss puts my heart at ease.

The touch I feel makes my senses spike.
It’s something that I more than like.

Mother dances with me to her song.
With happiness, I sing along.

Her soothing touch is all I need.
Coming home I am loved indeed.

This love I have for mother’s treats
Are not because they’re tasty sweet.

The tastes I taste make my senses spike
It’s something that I more than like.

I eat my mother’s cookies fast
But it’s her love that’ll always last.

The chocolaty taste is just so sweet.
Yet, it’s coming home that makes me feel complete.

The End
