Arizona – Letting Go

Standard

I wrote this based on a personal experience with a close friend who decided to move across the country for a time period to try and find themselves and it hurt me inside due to me letting go.  It was necessary and expected.  I put my feelings into words to try to sort out my heart…

They say it’s nice in Arizona;

Weather is fit for a king.

The sun stays in the sky longer;

Past hurts a fading thing.

When you unpack your suitcase;

I hope you find the rest

From all those confused blues.

I hope you aren’t the exception;

The mockery of the burning heat.

The dust stirring up the memories;

Brining you back to the town you try to flee.

I hope you find your answer;

That your peace in more than a mirage.

You let go of all the failures;

You’ve let them haunt you far too long.

My friend, you have a gypsy soul.

You easily love then leave them;

Not wanting to linger.

Never staying one place too long.

Some say you are a pirate;

A cold-hearted man of stone.

I just see a lonely heart;

Still searching for its’ home.

Arizona is known for cowboys;

Loners trying to steer their course.

Something about the desert sand;

Helps them face their inward fears.

I hope you fight your demons;

Even more, I hope you win.

More than anything in the world;

I want to see you happy again.

May the dark clouds in your eyes;

No longer have the chance to stay.

Instead of all the rain;

Sunshine fills your stay.

As much as I don’t want you to forget;

Memories can be a jaded thing.

So, if letting go of me is needed;

Leave me behind my dear friend.

My friend, you have a gypsy soul.

You easily love then leave them;

Not wanting to linger.

Never staying one place too long.

Some say you are a pirate;

A cold-hearted man of stone.

I just see a lonely heart;

Still searching for its’ home.
