Home was then


Together we were,
Having each other,
Making memories.
Living life.

“This was home,”
Those who live no more,
Whom we loved,
In our thoughts,
Our hearts,
Our loves exist in echoes…
All labour in vain.

Our names, waiting to be said,
Our happiness, yet to return,
Our leaders, to be found.
A generation to come, to live a danger.

Where is the sun?
Where is the rain?
Where is the solution?
Did we worry for tomorrow
that took away today?

This *HOME* we had, yet to return to us.
