I walked along these streets without a care in the world
What had only been 9 years seems like Aeons ago.
Hopes and dreams talked about with friends and lovers;
During the walk through this enchanting place that was home once
The atmosphere felt alive, the nights were comforting;
Filled with companionship and laughter…
Solace was found in the familiarity of these streets.
Now there’s new edifices, once smiling faces replaced by strangers;
Friendships and loves are never relished until they are no more.
I now mourn for what once was.
It’s not my home, it’s their home
And I’m welcome no more…
