Hello Stranger
I knew you once well,
For you opened the door of curiosity and satisfied my anguish.

Hello Stranger
I knew you once well,
For you opened my eyes to new ideas and I found solace still through pain.

Hello Stranger
I knew you once well,
For you were always a part of a dishonest world and I sheltered you though denial.

Hello Stranger
I knew you once well,
For I’ve seen you before lying still through the night crying in hushed whispers.

Hello Stranger
I knew you once well,
But my oh my how you’ve changed!

Hello Stranger
For the first time I see you with my own eyes.

Hello Stranger.
