She came home to me today!
Time stood still
But those five years are erased.
It’s like she never left:
No awkward silences, just kisses.
Our love’s as strong as ever.
We won’t argue again;
This time it will work.
I knew she still loved me all along.
Angry words were empty words.
All that matters is she’s here: home.
