come home to yourself

when gray clouds seem to hang lower
than they usually do
when lavender petals refuse
to share their fragrance with you
when the moon gets weary
of listening to your stories
and would rather watch you lie awake
dreading the arrival of dawn,
always remember
to come home to yourself
and love the person within
