I'd give up everything I've found as penance for what I've done.
Just to have her hold me one more time.
I don't need her to be my mate,
I need her to keep my head straight.
I'd love her to be what she is,
a totally free spirit, the best Mother I've ever seen.
Roaming freely across this vast plane.
Smiling freely at everything as I now do.
She was the best friend I've ever had,
and I didn't even know it.
I thought I found her multiple times,
but I ran away scared.
Now I've chased her away again,
and I'll be forever in her debt regardless.
It's too bad that I didn't grow up in time
to see her as I should have.
I hope that I get the chance to see her with the eyes I have now.
