Deep deep pangs.

Wishing for home

for familiar ground

for some whiff of kaapi

for mom's lap

sister's teases

dad's friendly fights

everyone's comfortable silences

and those loving familiar faces

A deep need for home

for those old dear things and places



And yet... life tugs you back to reality

and makes you realize

that this, my dear, is existence for a few borrowed years from home.
