LOOKING BACK


LOOKING BACK

S.JENSEN (C) 2018

I SIT HERE

SNOW FALLIN'

OUTSIDE

PEACE IN MY

HEART EVEN

IF ITS AS IT IS

LOOKING BACK

TO MY PAST

DOESN'T HAUNT

LIKE IT USED TO

BEEN THROUGH

A TON OF HELL

WITH PEOPLE

ITS THAT LOVE

CURSE THING

OF MINE

YET I HOLD ON

TO ALL THE GOOD

MEMORIES

AND HOPE

SOMEWHERE

DOWN THE

LINE OF LIFE

LOVE WILL WORK

ITS WAY BACK

IN TO MY LIFE

AND BE THE ONE

THAT LASTS

I AM WISER

NOT SO MUCH

A FOOL

YET I KNOW I

CAN BE

SO NAIVE'

SOMETIMES

THINGS ARE OUT

OF OUR HANDS

AND WE HAVE

TO KNOW

IT WILL WORK

OUT

IN THE END

FOR THE BEST

I HAVE NEVER

HAD VERY GOOD

LUCK WHEN

IT COMES

TO LOVERS

AND THOUGH

MY FLAME IS

COOLED

ITS SO BEEN

DIRECTED

BY A HIGHER

BEING FOR SURE

TODAY

CHANCES ARE

SO LIKE HOW

THAT JUST HAPPEN

REASONS FOR

EVERYTHING

THE UNIVERSE

DOESN'T WORK

ON MY HUMAN

TIMELINE

WISH IT DID

YET SOMETHING

ALWAYS

FINDS AWAY

LOOPED REEL

AND OUT OF THE BLUE

DAMN THERE

HAS TO BE

SOMETHING

TO HOW IT

MATCHES WHEN THE

UNIVERSE

PUTS TWO

TOGETHER

IN THE SAME PLACE

IN THAT MOMENT

GOING

OH DAMN

HOW THE HECK

TO THE LITTLE

THINGS

THAT MATTER

SO MUCH

SNOWFLAKES

FLOATING

DOWN THE DISTANCES

FROM SMALL

TO LARGE

EACH UNIQUE

EACH PRECIOUS

LANDING TO MELT

LANDING TO STICK

PAIN IS A OLD FRIEND

YET I LET IT BE

ENDURING IT

TILL IT PASSES

YET MY HEART

IS SOARING

IN THIS CHANCE

MOMENT

TIME CARRIES

ME FORWARD

HAPPINESS

LOVE

AND

HOLDING

BLISS

THROUGHOUT

AS I WORK HARD

TO KEEP ALL

BALANCED

LET THE PAST

BURN AWAY

AND KNOW

FOR THOSE

I LOVE

ALWAYS FIND

AWAY

TO STAY IN

MY LIFE

AND COME BACK

DESPITE

THE CHALLENGES

WHEN WE ARE

IN A BETTER SPACE

WE ARE MORE

IN SYNC

AND STILL I

BELIEVE LOVE TRUE

WILL WORK

ITS WAY...

HOPING IN THIS

LIFETIME

NOT THE NEXT

IT WILL COME

AGAIN

AND LAST FOREVER

JUST HOW

WHO

WHEN

WHERE

I GUESS ALL IN

DUE TIME

LOOPED HEARTS

LOOKING BACK

AND

LOOKING

FORWARD.
