If you lived here you'd be home now

"Wheatpasting the Moon" by Neha

If you lived here you'd be home now -
Says the highway sign
I know -
if I lived here I'd be home now
But I don't live here. I could.
But I don't want to live here.
Not now at least.
My home is far
My journey long
I'm not home now but consider
this road as much my companion
as the other travelers - Some my own
Some unknown.
If I lived here I'd be home now.
But I don't.
Home is far
This road is here
And I roll on like the treads of tire.
Tired.Tried.Again and Again.
..Da capo sine fine
And it is fine.

- Neha

Note: Da capo sine fine is a term in music meaning "repeat from the beginning to end". Learn more here.
