Long ago we made a promise
to meet under the blue skies
beside the acacia grove.
You asked me to search my heart for justice
when fear clasped its chains around my feet.
And as I turned and stumbled away
you promised me unconditional love.
You knew in time I’d learn to trust my feelings
in the season when cool winds scatter dust around.
Apart from you, I found myself.
Who I really am.
Though there’s nothing in life to be certain of
I looked inside and found the answers
amidst the memories.
That love is truth and truth is justice.
And in my heart I found all three.
