You’ll Never Come Back

(My Paper Airplane)

You were just a piece of paper
Not crafted, not molded
Unfit for the story you would later take a role in
You were an empty slate
A meal with no plate
A meal before prep
A crop ripe to collect

You were just a piece of paper
It was I who would fold you
Craft you and mold you
So you could fly where I couldn’t go to
You were an empty slate
And I was a living mistake
With experience in my deed
I gave you my all so you could succeed

You were just a piece of paper
But I made you a plane
A jet yet eloquent as a crane

You were just a piece of paper
But I gave you a gift
And I gave you a lift

You were just a piece of paper
But you soared in the sky
I looked from below, you looked from up high

You were just a piece of paper
But you managed to change
If our roles were reversed would you do the same?

You were just a piece of paper
Now you’re so much more
I note to myself here on the floor

You were just a piece of paper
I’m all I’ve ever been and I’ll always be the same

You’ll never come back, my paper airplane…
