She Knew

The price of happiness and growth

The trade-off of diminishing returns

To release the bud and bloom

Unfurled and blazing colors

This she knew

When she let go

The uncertainty and unknown

Became the foundation for

Flowering

Indications

Explorers know

Are well acquainted with the dead ends

The sudden drop of vertical stone

The thorn riddled thicket

The rushing river

No bridge

The lovers know

Are well acquainted with the dread ends

The sudden drop of perpetual phone

The scorn riddled tempest

The shushing shiver

No bridge

Explorers and lovers know

Are well acquainted with endings

Learning and letting go

I can tell by your shoes and your eyes

You’ve been down a few paths

Where the way slipped away

And you’ve had to backtrack

And find a new trail

I’ve stood on a ledge once or twice

Beautiful views which led nowhere nice

I’ve been caught in the brambles

Left there in a shambles

Watched the love flow out of my life

Explorers and Lovers

Recover

It’s true

Resupply and prepare

For adventures anew

If you’ll take my hand now

There’s a trail that I’ve found

And I’d like to share it with you
