Arms wrapped around knees,
She looks out a window,
Into the summer night.
Late, she should be in bed,
But her mind is too busy right now,
Feeling small in a big world.
As little she saw no limits,
Imagined she could do anything,
Growing up, reality slowly took over,
She probably would not be.
But the dreams also changed.
It became about finding her place,
Feeling safe, content, happy,
Falling in love,
Being loved in return,
Sharing passion and desire.
Life took many twists and turns,
Love lost and found,
Education finished, roots settled.
There were many nights of passion,
Yet also moments of loneliness.
Tonight, she feels alone.
Did she make the right choices,
Go down the best paths?
She knows she will never have the answers.
All she knows is she wishes
She was wrapped up in strong arms right now,
Drifting off to sleep, feeling loved.
