I drive by the little green cottage,
barely visible from the street.
The property that has come to represent
and innocence lost.
I know that I can't go and knock on the door,
but I drive by again,
hoping to see a light on in the window
and to send some comfort to the little girl that used to live there.
She is sleeping there somewhere,
alone, afraid, and untucked...
but it won't be that way forever, darling,
Hiraeth (n.) - a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for the lost places of your past.
