Carry Me Home

Sometimes the night will sing me a song

And sometimes it leaves me alone

I close my eyes and I feel your voice

And I wait for you to carry me home


And the ghosts that come when the sun goes down

I keep them all inside

They dance around when I close my eyes

And I feel the past come back around


And I know it’s only a beggar’s dream

A place where we can finally sleep

When all that matters is where we are now

And I listen for the words that’ll carry me home

  1. I really enjoyed this poem! It moved me emotionally.

    Suggestion– I wonder if the last line could be improved if it rhymed with sleep or dream because the first two stanzas have a rhyme in them, even though the rhyming pattern is different.

    1. Thank you for the feedback, I really appreciate it. I see what you are saying. I tend to write with not much in the way of structure or form but I will take another look at this piece and see what I can some up with, based on your input. Thank you again.
