After the waiting. You see it break on the horizon.

Small at first, inching just as slowly as the months had felt.

Growing larger and larger, building just as the anticipation does.

Music playing, flags waving, sailors standing sternly all around the boarders of the destroyer.

 Then the waiting is over. Life feels un-paused.

He is Home.
