Her childhood heart left behind
Through tears she waves goodbye,
Her youthful soul that once held life
Is barren a dessert achingly dry.
Left behind are roads of dreams
Crushed by others mistakes,
The sadness strays from soul to heart
The weight of sorrow it steals, it takes!
Kindred spirits have turned to dust
The walls built are made of stone,
She reaches for a strand of hope
Too find she stands alone.
For in the miles she sees no future
Craved answers concealed from her soul,
Others convictions now tear at her heart
There is no room just a gaping hole!
Shards of happiness hold together
Gathered treasures small but few,
The memory bank that is penniless
She prays one day will be renewed!
