It’s late again
2 o’clock in the morning and I’m awake again.
Dreaming about two places,
One familiar, comfortable, mine;
Another enticing, exciting
Across the sea, a new life inviting.
How will I choose?
So many things to lose,
Or new adventures to pursue.
Can I bear to be apart?
From my home, my heart,
My family, my life
My place as a mother and a wife.
A chance to start again
Explore rivers, lakes and mountains,
Sun and snow
So many new, yet familiar, places to go.
A new frontier,
but getting lost is my fear!
How will I know?
It’s late again.
Time to close my eyes and drift away
Before the dawn light wakes me
And wander where my dreams may take me…..
