Finding My Place


I couldn't see the road ahead 
or how it'd all work out...
In time I had to make a choice
though filled with fears and doubt...

The early years were filled with dreams
the stars where mine to grasp...
As time wore on and seasons changed
they disappeared so fast...

I wandered in and out of love 
adrift out on the seas... 
The disappointments wore me down 
and brought me to my knees... 

In time I found my place in life
someone who touched my heart...
The moment she declared her love
I felt the pain depart...
