4 Heart it! 133

I searched for a lifetime for you
Please understand I searched high and low
But now I realise in all the wrong places
I gave it everything I hadI searched in bars and clubs
I drank and took drugs
When that didn’t work
I went on a journey so far and wide
Couldn’t understand why you were so hard to findI looked for you in so many foreign places
I never gave up my love
Confused I asked for help
I lay awake asking the universe
I know you are near I feel your struggle and pain
Why is this so hard for fuck sake
I can’t explain
I miss you I know you need help
It breaks me to think you may wonder why you have been deserted
Listen to my words
I will search a million worlds
Whatever it takes I will find you

Guess what my beautiful girl
Finally after all this time
Someone knows how to help
Through laying my soul bare
Believe it took mountains to find the honesty to share
I now understand you were hiding in fear
But you were never anywhere far so so near
I have found you little girl
The younger version of me
There have been tears and resistance
I am sorry I left you
Please take my hand
Come stand with me and witness this view
No matter how tough it all is
I swear I will never leave you
I love you my younger self

Now my darling girl the child in me
I know how close and how to find you
I look in the mirror to see you looking back at me
There was never any reason to run
I just needed to be
