RETREAT

Copyright 2018 by Judy Unger

– 

Retreat is where I go when I am sad

All my tears let me know

I long for you and miss you so

Retreat is my escape from the world

I withdraw and suddenly

I feel you surround me

At those times, I’d wish you were near

and then, you’d appear

but you were only in my mind

only in my mind

you were only in my mind

Retreat is when a song

can soothe my soul

A melody fills my heart

reminding me we’re not apart

Retreat is when I find peacefulness

My music has begun

to be my true companion

At those times, I’d wish you were near

and then, you’d appear

but you were only in my mind

only in my mind

you were only in my mind

only in my mind

With songwriting I cannot pretend. Singing allows me to share my true feelings. Music healed me of so much pain!
