Letting Home Go
In this dream I had my family all here.
I wanted the fawn to stay with me, and take her to my place.
she was so warm and cozy, and had a sweet little face.
But she looked so very hungry, so I brought her inside.
But as soon as we got in, I broke down and cried.
This was the place I grew up, the place I called home.
What was going on here? I felt so alone.
The house was just a mess, and the walls were all bare.
I couldn't stand the thought, someone else was living there.
This is MY home, I belong here.
Just me and my family, and my sweet little deer.
so I went back out to sit, so I wouldn't be so sappy.
but a different family was there, they seemed to be real happy.
In one of the kids I saw my happy face, I realized that these children really needed this place,
Just like they need each other, they now have a beautiful home, a father and a mother.
So I said goodbye to the yard, as tears rolled from my eyes, this isn't my dad's anymore, it's some other guy's.
It's no longer mine to show, I just knew I had to let it go.
I know how much home meant to me,
So I let the fawn run home, let her run free.
I woke up last night, my face full of tears, I had to wipe them up, and let go of my fears.
I no longer have that home, but now I can see, that I only need my family, who's still as happy as can be.
