Long Lost Friends

I thought I was alone,
But then I heard you
On the other end of
This tin can telephone.

I followed the line,
And it lead me straight
To the other hand of mine!

I found a friend!
That friend is me!

Was I lost?
Or hiding?
Or exiled?
I think it was a combination of the three.

I have returned home!
Home to the heart, soul and mind!

Who decorated?
Do you mind if I add some color?
What do we do for fun around here?
Our creativity has spent enough time confined.

Hello my old heart!
I learned some tough lessons while you were away.

Will you forgive me?
Do you understand why I let you go?
Can we work together now?
We must exchange wisdom without delay!

I am welcome here!
All of me is welcome here!

Are you ready?
How do you feel?
Will you hold my hand?
Together we can conquer this one little thing called fear.
