Welcome back, delight, how you come courting
dazzling with bright joy and laughter, thwarting
the demons of anxiety, despair
who turn and flee just hearing that you care.
Higher angelic realms unknown to me
fulfilling their assignment tirelessly
renew all hope pirated by news streams
lifting with synchronicity and dreams
this child who yells and runs to me to fling
himself into my arms, how my heart sings!
