    With the wind you flew away.
    You made it back from time to time,
    and I acted like I didn't see you,
    I didn't hear you,
    but through it all I could smell you there,
    feeling your presence when you came.
    You shouted at me accusations,
    your frustrations,
    accusing me of an Identity lost.
    Then I started to realize you would never leave,
    and it annoyed the hell out of me.
    Then you were back again,
    forcing your views, and opinions.
    I stuck my fingers in my ear and pretended not to listen.
    But the voice inside wouldn't stay silent.
    Up from my inner soul you came so surprising.
    What was shut out Is now trapped inside.
    You stepped into your place.
    And only now does the saga begin.
    You are of me,
    Who I am,
    What I have become,
    Who I will be.
    You are the friend I met before but chose to ignore.
    But only now have I allowed you to stay.
    You are the Woman that lives in me,
    Also called my destiny.
