We all seek a sense of belonging,
It’s our nature to be in a pack,
a family to love and be loved by,
each with the other one’s back.
I went away for a long time,
not only in body, in mind.
Not really sure what I was looking for,
what I was desperately trying to find.
Wherever I went you were missing,
but then when I came back I was too,
The confusion was so very tiring,
it was splitting my heart into two.
The years of being torn are now over,
I know now where home is for me,
it’s whenever we are together,
no matter where that place may be.
