Homeward bound

Today I saw you walking home.

Head bowed, shoulders hunched, sadness about your being.
Was it an unkind word ?....a scathing look?... a thoughtless deed?...a hurtful exclusion ?

Or was it the absence
of a warm embrace, a considerate deed, a friendly smile, a timely word,
or caring companionship?

I hope home was welcoming,
a haven.
For life can be cruel, blunt, presumptuous, unforgiving, consuming, cold, and uncaring
And for all I know, home may be no better for you.

But I wish you otherwise
Because everyone needs a solace, a refuge, a place to be...
where love and soul meet
In truth.
