I awoke this morning,
And I saw a bright blue sky above me.
The clouds were moving calmly,
And the wind was whispering softly.
Today would be the day,
I would leave this place of haunting,
And run until I couldn't anymore,
And I knew that would only been when I would find you.
I stood up then,
And smiled like I did,
And I started to follow the wind,
And chase after the clouds.
Ran through the fields,
And through the streams that crossed my path,
And watched how a beautiful scenery could continue on,
When the rest of the world gave up.
I smiled again and continued to go on,
But when I looked back up again,
Clouds surrounded me.
I kept running,
Until the winds blew against me,
And the storms slowed me down.
I continued to run and run until I could no longer breathe.
Nothing would stop me,
I promised myself this until I found you.
The snow came,
And so did the baking heat,
But I kept on running,
Because I would never give up on you.
Storm after storm I continued on
Even though everything I held dear told me to go back home.
The sun broke through the clouds one day,
And at the end of what I thought was forever I saw you,
Standing there smiling at me
And holding your hand out towards me.
But when I reached you,
The world I saw behind you wasn't the same as my own,
It was made of cold stones packed together,
And cars that moved forever filling the air with poison.
I smiled and hugged you
And did what the world didn't expect.
I turned around and started running back to the place I knew as home.
I wouldn't change you,
And I knew I wouldn't change,
But I knew I would always love you,
But I couldn't be something I'm not.
I ran until I could feel myself fly,
And jumped until I couldn't touch the ground,
And then from a distance,
From what seemed forever ago,
I heard your voice,
And I felt your touch,
And when the sun broke through the clouds once more,
I saw you there standing before me in the same place I saw you last.
And when I smiled this time,
You smiled back,
And you stepped into my world
And we ran until we were at the beginning,
And we smiled,
We flew in the sky that never darkened again,
And when we made it home,
And saw everyone we loved,
They said "Hello",
And we responded to them in the way we did.
