Welcome Home

I’ve mentioned before that Hurricane Katrina took from me things that are irreplaceable.
Among those things were some of the deepest Friendships I have ever come to know.

This weekend, three of my dearest friends are traveling back to New Orleans to visit.

I wrote this in honor of them:

There is a comfort
On seeing your banner
On the horizon fluttering
From the highest Spires
Of the city you love
In the knowing…
Knowing there are people
Beyond those Gates
Who know your Heart
Who love your Spirit
Who can not wait
To hold you in their embrace
To clasp your hands in theirs
To say through their smiles
“Welcome Home.”
