I made up my mind to take a day off work and go someplace
It had been years since I have left the house for an overnight
and it was when I was driving away
east
that I understood why I had tried to stop myself from going
I spent all morning around the house telling myself it was stupid to go
I could just stay home, and relax and rest – all things I never seem to do
and then as I was heading east
I understood what was holding me back
I no longer had to stay near home because
I no longer had to care for my Dad
I no longer had to be there for him
and now I have to learn
to be there for myself
