Did it hurt
when you came down from up above
to join us again?
Did it feel strange
to come back among us,
to rejoin your former companions
and act like everything’s normal?
We got by without you.
You must know that.
to survive without your help
We found ways
to get back to some version of stability
with you out of our lives.
you’re back from outer space
and I find you here before me dear
with that sad look upon your face.
I should have changed that stupid lock
but then you always knew
how to get back in my good graces.
You always knew
there was a place for you here
