In This New Land I Had Found A Lover
No ship could encapsulate the feeling on leaving your home,
Travelling from one world into another that you could only now reach from a phone.
I remember the first day I came,
I had reached a land I didn’t know I could ever claim.
I had walked down the new street,
So far that I couldn’t feel my feet.
It was a chilly day in spring,
And I sat in the park on a swing.
The leaves were slowly coming back to life,
And the smell of freshly cut grass was rife.
I looked at the lively city in front of me,
Thinking about what my life would now be.
Now I sat in the exact same spot,
With three years of experience that I had now got.
I recall the moment very vividly,
When the sun had sat quietly.
The silence was loud,
And the moon shone proud.
I had realised that I had now started to call this place home,
And I no longer felt alone.
I made new friends,
Who were all gems.
I had left my home to find another,
And in this new land I had become a lover.
