I Never Left Home


Impressed by composure you’ve shown for a week
I seem to recall that you got it from me
Now I am weakened, confidence shattered
Then it occurs to me, none of it mattered

Drowned with delight, I escape in the night
Hoping for nothing to spoil my flight
I’ll never be halted, I always shall roam
Then it occurs that I never left home

Cherishing memories of times spent with you
Scaling the cliffs and enjoying the view
Sailing the river, devoid of a care
It occurs to me then that I never was there

I never left home
None of it mattered
