the goal was never
for you to be the one
to mend my heart

you became the sand
between my toes
that stayed behind

as I walked on through
this ever changing storm
that I was born unto

give me hope
that my footprints
won’t wash away

nothing to say
nothing to do

but let me go
what frees me
frees you

About Melissa Leigh

I believe that every life is full of endless moments that help you, hurt your, change you, inspire you, and allow you to mold yourself into the best version of yourself that you can possibly be. Stories exist in all of us and need to be shared in order to grow.
