Believing

for Brightwell


And so you turned your back
....to the places and faces
..on the well worn paths
To loose yourself
....................to become lost and explore
and in doing so
....to discover new ways and new you's
You walked away from who you were
.....................and found yourself in who you weren't
As years past
...you flew high and sank deep
Searching for things
............that you felt you needed
But the more you looked the more you found
......temporary were the smiles
and happiness a dream
Gone with the morning
.....................................................................Till the day you woke
.....knowing not where you were
and who you were a stranger to your mind
Looking back in fear
........all you saw were roads
and roads
and roads
and roads
and roads
and roads
...A lifetime of paths less traveled and bridges burned
..Between you and the young Man
Who first stepped from known paths

So you searched,,,,, retraced
......seeking familiar among the unknown
And sometimes despair
...................... at lost forever and gone for good
Walked and walked
....footsore and desperate
running
........... stumbling
............................lurching
........................................searching

................................................................................Till at last
around a twist and bend
over a hill and hurdle
.........You saw you
................Standing and waiting
as you had been doing for so long
........Unsure
if you would ever
..........................See yourself again


And yet now I tell you
..........That although you were unaware
..There were those of us
...........Who watched and followed and cared
We BELIEVED in you strength and search
.............................................and knew in our hearts
That you knew the way home
...
...
...
...
...
...
...
.................................All Along............................................
