Welcome home

I am the lighthouse keeper
Writing letters in my tower
Keeping company of potted plants
Dogs on short leashes
All of us settled, restless

You will make your riches
Save your lives
Chase your dreams
And I will jot each adventure down
In a bedtime storybook
Wear your pride in my smile
Plant my tiny seeds in familiar ground
And wait.
