Will my shadow from this long day, still be lingering in my pain?
I wait in silence, as it wraps its hands around me
There are sad memories in my mind, can they be erased by the tears I’ve shed?
Where do I even begin
laughter no longer reaching my eyes
vivid memories stuck in my mind, faces I can’t forget
I reach out far enough, but there’s only my shattered dreams escaping me.
Like at crossroads,
I stare blankly for a long time, and suddenly I hear the voice
the voice that makes me look back
I’ve grown with every passing moment, feeling sorry to my youth
the nights I had to sleep alone, holding on to pain
Time raised me, and nudges me out into the world
My past self would ask me now;
‘Do you think you’re happy enough to laugh?’
But I won’t stop dreaming
until my hopes are fulfilled entirely
And someday in the far future, that child then,
Would she have gotten all that she ever dreamed of?
