15 Years Ago

15 years ago, I was strong, I was whole, and I was in control.
15 years ago, my family did not know how far that I would go.
I was drifting in those days in an anorexic haze, too terrified of my old life to keep my body fed.
I had had enough of fear; in my heart it became clear that it would have to stop and let me go.
Let me go; Let me go.

15 years ago, I was young I had a soul mate, but now we're growing old.
15 years gone by, and my family still asks why, and what lengths would I try?
Now I'm floating through my days in an antiseptic haze. I’m tethered to this bed with tubes to keep my body fed.
My mother still has hope and she tugs it like a rope, as if a judge could order me to stay -- or let me go.
Let me go.

Now I'm floating through my days while the politics replays. I’m tethered to this bed with tubes to keep my body fed.
My soul is a balloon that would like to leave the room to drift on home or fly up and away.
Just let me go; let me go.
Let me go; let me go.
15 years ago... Just let me go...
