My Own

I wander through the house

The last remnants of you now gone

It is now mine, really mine

I know it always has been

But I felt you assumed ownership

From the first moment you came here

Now I can breathe the fresh air of hope

And change the things you did

That never were run by me

The pieces of my past

You so casually threw to the side

I now begin to find a balance

Between who I was and who I’ve become

Bringing this home to life

With fond memories and a bright future
