When life comes in the way...
I woke up this morn,
To realise something was gone,
A little piece of my heart, and me,
Had gone missing before dawn.
A part of me I left behind,
In the me of yesterday,
And today felt empty…No! different,
As the rest of me was here to stay.
I wished to go back a bit,
To find that missing piece of me,
That could not make it to the morrow,
Because life happened, you see?!
Like it always did before,
Life came in the way,
And bruised a little star or two,
From my soul that fought all day.
And then gave in but not giving up,
To accept and learn something new,
That dawned upon me as I missed that me,
Looking in the mirror feeling blue.
It was still there, the someone I knew,
Fragments of those stars I left behind,
In this version of me from today,
Then what was I really trying to find?
Something had changed but not lost,
After all this while for there was room,
For some new sparkle and stardust to settle,
On my soul to grow and bloom.
