I walked along a busy street alone.
No one I met felt my needs.
My heart was trapped by a remote memory.
I longed for a return to my home.
I could not imagine how to escape.
I had no idea how to release the bonds.
Then, with small steps, I found some peace.
Clouds left my eyes and hope returned.
With a clear vision, I found the path.
I had a purpose again and I felt new joy.
Now I am at home with dear friends.
We share our love and I am free again.
