Remeber when you didn't know what to do
When it had happened again
And you didn't know exactly how to feel
That sort of in between place
That no thought place
No slot in your brain yet to store the feelings
No place for them to go
Remember how you couldn't quite decide which direction to walk
Or why you would go there
I was little and I remember
I would finally go back to my closet
Back behind the dresses hanging down
And lay down on the shoes
It was a place to go
And here I am again
A man now
With things to do
So there will be no closet for me today
I'll go to what must be done
But my child is still bewildered
In that state so well remembered
And like as not will spend the day that way
Until tonight
When I'll pretend my bed is my old closet
And with my child find comfort
As we lay down on the shoes

I'm healing now, and I wasn't sure I would.

Thank you Bobby - that touched deep. And I found comfort in your words. I hope someday you find comfort and release, for you have certainly helped me.

You words so often touch me and this one is a special example. Thanks, as always.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
(Woody Guthrie)

You don't have to lay down in those shoes anymore, my friend.
