WHERE THE GREEN GRASS GROWS

She went to where the green grass grows; on the warm sunlit hills. Though the night is long, and the journey is never ending.

She went to where the green grass grows, waving by the gentle wind blow. Though her tummy was crumbling, and her tiny legs were failing. Along that hot burning road, she looked back, but where she left behind is still not home.

She went to where the green grass grows, wet from the morning dew. Though her throat was choking and her eyes were dry. She ran under those bent palette; full of bottled water, but there was no drip that would quench her thirst.

She went to where the green grass grows, long may it come, unreachable it may be. Though she stopped more often, though she rested and keep herself together.

Until a pair of hands touched her back, and lift her up, to the air, domain she never knows. Though they hold her tight, and it’s dark all around, she heard that rhythm, the heart beat, the breath, the thickening bosom, and deflated lungs. One after another, two and many more.

And she went to where the green grass grows, when the hands that hold her opens, and she runs on the warm sunlit hills.

She went to where the green grass grows, when the voice from above whispered “Welcome home, Heidi” waving by the gentle wind blow.

She went to where the green grass grows, as she ran to kibble filled plate with fragrant smell and crunchy taste, dip her tongue to a pond like bowl, wet and cool just like morning dew.

She went to where the green grass grows. The night is long, and the journey never ending, but as long as it may, it comes, and there she will dwell forever.
