I’m Still Here

So, I’ve been away, hiding, healing

From you and your big city territory

Rebuilding a life, a home, a sanctuary

And now I am ready to share my story

 

I have several stories, of wild crimes

Close encounters of chaos and chance

Of lusty and superficial love

Embraced in twisty, fun, flirty dance

 

Somber, darkened days behind me

Your heartache no longer my fuel

Clouds parted, lifted and sacrificed

For bright blue, sunny skies of renewal

 

I’ve been living, dreaming and climbing

Moving mountains and moving west

Paving new paths and making new friends

Reconnecting with myself, alone, a lifelong quest

 

So, it’s been a while since you’ve seen me

Even longer since you’ve heard my voice

I had to go away and surrender to change

Now rewired, my reckoning is your doing, your choice.
