The truth is out – I have been freed
From the shackles of the past
No more to suffocate on what I know
My soul is liberated at last!
The past is never too far away
To escape the present day
Never will there be a time
When there is no price to pay
I am, at least, free from fear
Of what to do or say
If only I’d had the courage then
If the cards were mine to play
The family that was lost and gone
So many years has gone
The seasons changed and so did I
Still to me – they still belong
How strange, how cruel life can be
So many twists and turns
Yet fate, it seems, does have a way
To mend the bridges burned.
Jackie, Jan, Jamie, and I
We pose – a moment in time
Then separate lives we’d go on to live
With little reason nor rhyme.
For many years I’ve wondered why
And when me’d meet again?
The day is here, the time is nigh –
We meet somewhat and then..
I find myself alone again
Although each sibling near –
I dare not speak until my turn
The ghosts that haunt appear.
I did my part to reunite
The pieces left unfound
My heart it sings a brand new song
A song without a sound.
