She wasn’t sure what else to do, so she did something she could barely imagine.
She had sung for them all and found there was no more for her to do in this place. She had poured so much into the words and melodies they had taken on a life of their own. And it was this heart’s work which carried her forward.
She hoped she would come back someday. There were connections which would always be dear.
It wasn’t that she felt so brave. She knew it was what she had to do.
She packed her life up in boxes and bags and prepared to step off the edge of what she knew. It was thrilling to take the risk. But it was heart wrenching to go.
So the soul baring songstress with the silk smooth voice and sun bright smile prepared to sing her goodbyes to the laughter she had shared, the joy she had created and the loves that surrounded her.
But who would sing for the songbird?
Those who were happy to see her soar, but sad to see her go.
