Authenticity is what I long for
A safe place to fall
Welcoming arms to hold me
A joyful smile that knows me
Truthfulness that is raw
Hearts that are intertwined
Souls that combine in melody
Eyes that meet with a knowing glance
Fleeting are these things.
Fickle are their ways.
Where did it come from?
How will it return?
These are the mysteries before me
I stumble through the doubt of what I thought was truth.
Open the door to my heart
Help my being sing once more
Join in my song
Self doubt prevails although I ask it to leave,
Sadness squeaks back through into my mind.
It can be so loud
Letting fear dominate
Believe in authenticity
It will return
In a package unknown
Twinkle, hope, openness, all present
Waiting for a safe place to fall
Waiting for welcoming arms to enfold me
Waiting for a joyful smile that knows me well
Waiting for authenticity
