A Better Place

Her parents said …..I wonder where she’s now
We’d like to find her, but we don’t know how
If things went wrong and she’s in trouble now …..
We need to find her, but …..we don’t know how

 
She said …..I hate myself …..things are so bad …..
I think of family, and it makes sad
They won’t forgive the things that I have done …..
I want to leave, I wish that I could run ………..

 
But then she  said …..I’m sure …..they’d never……… understand …….

 

So she just cried and couldn’t make the move
Then someone said …..What do you have to lose?
Not like you can’t come back …..to this despair …..
If you find out that you’re not wanted there

 
She borrowed money from her only friend
And rode a bus home …..and then at the end ….
She saw her Mom and Dad and saw their tears
And knew they’d try to help and calm her fears …..

 
Remembered home and she began to cry …..
and couldn’t talk about the reasons why …..
But they just hugged her, and just held her tight
with younger hearts than when she’d left that night ……..

 

And she felt loved again …..
and really safe …..

Now that she made it to …..
a better place ………..
