I lost myself in the forest one day.
So much so, that you could no longer stay.
You gave up telling me where to reach the light.
I wouldn’t listen to you, all I did was fight.
This killed you to leave me like this.
But you knew that after the pain and confusion, I would find bliss.
Knowing that I’d find it without you present made you feel bad.
But let me tell you, you did nothing wrong, so don’t be sad.
After my time stumbling around in the dark, I found my path.
The one I had lost when I gave in to my ego’s wrath.
Through this pain, I found an immense sense of inspiration.
I ran down that path so quickly, I needed to find you and show you my dedication.
When I first became lost, I couldn’t see you and what you were trying to say.
Now I’ve woken up and look forward to every single day.
I’ve found my way out and I’m still running.
I’m so excited about who I am and what I am becoming.
I still find myself dreaming of your smile.
I’d love for you to just hold me for a little while.
While I tell you all of the amazing things I have found.
The things you always tried telling me, but I was just never around.
When I lost you, I found me.
Is that what you’d hoped when you set me free?
This experience brought me inspiration and drive.
I want to feel love every day and thrive.
I want to laugh many times and shine.
I want to wander the forest with you, surrounded by pines.
To play hide and seek behind every beautiful tree.
I must now ask you, now that I’ve done it…will you find me?
