in me

if I could get a glimpse of what´s ahead
step out of me, my body and my head
what would I see in me?

a fragile piece of broken memories?
a lonely soul,
a whisper on the breeze?
who will I see in me?
will I be what my dreams told me to be?
or rather what you expect to see?
can there be more for me?

will you still know me,
know me like today?
or will the sands of time lead us astray?
no one can see what will be
but do we really wish to see?
i feel this longing still, deep in me

time can be our healer, not a friend
will I be unfulfilled in the end?
