all along

Written by: J B

in the light of this new day 
where dreams of yesterday 
fade softly away 
past is the doubt 
the hapless thoughts 
sealed with tape 
the oblong  box 

hidden deep are the old scars 
packed inside a chambered heart 
no room for all of those old things 
never were they what they seemed 
learning from the same mistakes 
waiting longer 
growing stronger 
bandaged by your love 

why would I ever want to look back? 
when I was not on the right track 
with one headlight I drove away 
Jakob’s words in my mind played 
over and over I played your song 
and still I knew it all along
