Off to the place I left behind sometime ago,
I’m returning to my haven where I belong.
Just a couple of days yet it seems like years have gone.
Cos it’s the first time I’ve stayed far from home.
The wait has ended now I got to go.
To meet some souls that wait for this estranged soul.
With arms wide open, I see them waiting with bated breath.
They seldom know that I’m returning again to the place where I’m from.
The road that opened up to new opportunities as I moved,
Is happy to see me again as I go back for a moment.
It speaks to me without words by showing me the horizon;
It silently says to return in peace cos there’s still a long way to go.
I remember leaving behind a whole lot of things,
Some of it can be reclaimed and some will remain unchanged.
Few moments that can’t be reversed and a few things I may have to let go.
Because I believe that yesterday’s sacrifices become blessings of tomorrow.
