This is how I know

There are days…

of frustration,
of confusion
of longing to be heard
and understood, reassured
an exchange with you,
no one else will do

of exhaustion,
of vulnerability
of wanting nothing more
than to have you to greet me
in my homecoming

of the recurring image
of being enveloped
securely in your arms,
your lips pressed
against the top of my head
then my forehead
then embracing my lips,
lips that have been waiting
all day for this moment
