I stepped away
for a moment
fell heart first
in this life
and barred
my own
way home.
My mountains
missed me
trees spoke
my name
the shore
to see me gone.
I am still
her daughter
salt water
in my veins
at my feet
I hope she knows.

fell heart first

what a wonderful line!!!
And stanza 2 nearly had me in tears too! crying
And then to top it all you've really written a Mother's Day message to Scotland!
