Loving yourself

I’ve left them behind 

I’ve left her behind 

I’ve left him behind 

I’ve left them all behind 

They’ve been left behind 

I look outside the window where they stood 

And now it’s just me 

I don’t know who this new me is 

I am not familiar with this new self 

I haven’t seen this self before 

But the self is waving to me 

And now that all has been left behind 

This new self is all I am left with 

I will learn to love this new self 

And we will love each other 

Because everyone and everything else has been left behind 

Little moments and memories and life stories 

All have been left behind 

It’s time for rejuvenation 

When all have been left behind 

Who is left? 

This self 

Who are you going to love now?
