THE KEY

Copyright 2018 by Judy Unger

 –

After you left I was locked away

In a prison of grief; I cried every day

I couldn’t escape and years went by

I accepted my prison and stopped asking why

When I saw the key, I couldn’t believe

The prison doors opened; I could leave

I lost what I loved; grief swallowed me

Until the day I found the key

I let myself out; life wasn’t the same

I slowly adjusted, but whispered your name

I tried to forget all I went through

But I never let go of my love for you

When I saw the key, I couldn’t believe

The prison doors opened; and I could leave

I never dreamed that I’d be free

But then one day, I found the key

When I saw the key, I couldn’t believe

The prison doors opened; I could leave

What I loved most was taken from me

But you came back to give me the key

These are my lyrics to “The Key” in progress. I decided to change the part about losing hope into a line about accepting my prison.
