It’s been long but not really lonely,
I have been away but not really distanced.
I know you missed me, I missed you too.
I know you thought of me,
I thought of you too.
I know you would understand, this was important for me.
I know you don’t know what I was doing all this while, but you will still forgive me.
You and I have been together for years,
More than I care to remember,
More than you care to define.
You came to me as the only way you could,
Silently yet surely, that I was your home.
You never left me once you came,
You never gave up on me.
I never doubted that you love me,
But I still had to take this trip, alone.
I thought I would find myself at the end of this trip,
How could I have known that I had left myself with you?
I thought I was chasing a dream but it turned out to be an empty fantasy,
How could I have known that all my dreams lay where I left you?
Yet I don’t regret I took this trip.
I could break walls that didn’t let me hug you at times,
I could burn knots that tied me away from you.
Now, I have the free heart I always wanted to give you.
And now I am on my way back,
To the passion throbbing in my veins,
To the dreams I breathe,
To life itself.
I am back to love.
