One day you will treasure your beloved body like you should.
Your will hold your head high,
eyes beaming with sparkles.
Taking each step as only a bit further up the ladder.
Delighted with your accomplishments and success,
courageous and adventurous as ever.
You will be loved and wanted,
just as you are now.
But one day, you will know that.
Left alone on the side of the gravel road,
absent of a home.
Without any family or friends.
The snow is sprinkling onto the ground,
and you didn’t even give me a jacket.
You tossed me out of your rusty old truck,
abandoning me in the void.
when I am knocked down,
gasping for a breath
take my hand
and pull me to my feet
The two of you raised me
To be kind
How will I ever repay you
Sleeping in your own bed
Your parents greet you in the morning
The familiar feeling
Recognizing roads and buildings
Knowing your way around town
Seeing your old school
We can all see how happy you are
That is so special
Did you ever think you’d get here?
I’m so glad you did
More and more joy is to come
The bird is singing outside the window
Creating beautiful tunes with her chirping
Music for her young that lie asleep in the nest
Soothing and gentle
Her motherly instincts are sharp
