Far Away

by Dawn

To be far away when young

to break out on your own

all you know left behind

is excitement and adventure

another highway another town

another trip through the places

less traveled

always another view

waiting on that far horizon

sometimes it's beautiful

sometimes it's just interesting

but there is always

another place to go

another place to be

another place to love

Then comes the day when

the next new place is just

another new place and you

long for roots to sink into the

earth far and deep.

You miss what you left behind

and you cannot go back

another lost bit of time

another lost face

another lost place

that once was yours

but is no longer

You left it long ago
