I’m on the train
heading to memory
to all I’ve ever known
to where I started from
where so much started from.
you are about to fly across the ocean
to a place you’ve never been.
I pray that good winds
will lift your wings,
I pray that if you’re looking for something
you’ll find it,
I pray that you’ll know what your heart tells you
and that you’ll have the courage
to follow it,
I pray that God meets you there
in ways you’ve never felt,
that you’d know yourself better,
deeper than ever before,
I pray you will come home safe.
I am always on your side,
always here to lean on
if you need it, if you let yourself.
I will always be waiting here
as I always am
and one day, if you want to tell me
I’d so love to hear
all about it.
