I gave it back the thing I took away
From my very source
The chance to live and breathe and think
To become me once more.
First was the surrendering of all long thought things
And stopping worrying at my beings core.
I then found that to listen closely
Not just to others but to me
Never saying that I wasn’t worth
The me I’m meant to be.
So if I appear to have changed
I could sit and quietly apologise
But now I have surrounded myself
And learned to surrender nothing else
In my head I see your eyes.
They told me things I couldn’t believe
That my damaged heart was unable to grieve
The world it wrought damage needless
And we were unable to get through
Now I know I can carry on
Heard your words as you meant them
As you said welcome back to you.
