The Very Last First

Welcome Back

By Eliza Gilkyson

It was the summer of my discontent
It was the fall of a lifetime
It was the winter of my penitence
Waitin' on the springtime

It was all sackcloth and ashes
Four a couple of years
I took my licks and my hundred lashes
I cried a bucket of tears

Well, that distant shore is forever out of reach
Before you know it you're washed up on the beach
And it's welcome back
It was a pretty dark day
But now the sun is shining
Welcome back
I guess I'm on my way

I was bent but I was not broken
I was sinking but I did not drown
I was reeling but I was still hoping
I could be lost and found

I was temporarily disconnected
In a state of disrepair
Disoriented and dejected
I had to climb out of there

Through the labyrinth and down
Til you land on solid ground

Welcome back......

Congrats, baby. For what it's worth, I'm extremely proud of you and how far you've come.
