Auld Reekie 

Updated: Mar 22, 2020

I didn't know when I'd see you again,

Four years loved and lost,

Right here.

Every time I leave,

I leave a part of myself behind.

My old self lived here.

Can I learn to love you again?

I watched lives get lost living here,

I lost friends and family here.

I cried and screamed here.

I watched people get married,

I saw relationships begin.

I laughed and smiled here.

No matter how far,

You never leave my heart.

Life took a turn,

And now I'm here.

I'm ready for my next move,

I can see myself growing old here.

But I also dream of leaving here.

The time has come,

The streets glow in the winter sun.

Auld Reekie, how I missed you.

It's good to be back with you.
