Calls Me Home


It was late at night, or early in the morning as one might say. Newt was cuddled up next to Lexi in their bed when he heard the cry of a baby in the next room over. His heart broke and he gently pulled away from Lexi, careful not to wake her.

Newt crept across the hall and opened the door to their son’s nursery. “Sh, I’m here. It’s okay. We wouldn’t want to wake the mummy, she’s very tired.“ He cooed and gently picked the baby up. The wizard sat down in a rocking chair close to the crib and started softly humming. It didn’t seem to help so Newt started to quietly sing.

“I‘m coming home
To breathe again,
To start again

I’m coming home
From all the places
I have been

With nothing
But a voice within
That calls me…
Calls me home”

Newt smiled softly as the baby calmed and stared up at him with Lexi’s emerald eyes.
