I Know

Summer

I know the yearning feelings of you.

I know your hunger to feel heard,

Wishing your dreams would come true,

To take flight and feel free as a bird.

I know the longings of your heart,

I know how years may seem wasted,

 You ache to make a fresh start

Instead of new words, cut and pasted.

I know in choices we feel trapped.

I know loneliness, when you’re not alone,

When it seems your life is already mapped

And dark nights feeling on your own.

I know how desperately you seek the light

I know how conflicting it is, searching for more!

As sun steadily rises, new hope is closer in sight!

Our eyes vigilantly waiting for a new opening door.

I’ve learnt that choices, I alone must make.

Not so easy when roads fork and one, I must take!
