Leap of faith

Kehoa 2002 (Sweden)



A garden filled with regrets
The one I walk in every night before my mind is put to rest
I visit it a lot
Especially when I'm met with possibilities that lead me to what-ifs
My garden is endless and has room for much more
There's a sea of seeds
Planted in the richest soil ready to bloom
Ready to visit my dreams when I'm lost
My garden doesn't haunt me
It simply presents me with the life I could've had
If I only took a leap of faith
