Becoming

I was still talking

Even though I had paused

And had more I wanted to say

I only blinked and missed 

What you wanted to say

Now you’re missing it all

I haven’t turned out yet

I’ve still got a way to go

 

I was still talking

There was more to say

Even though I had paused

And now you won’t get to see

But I hope that you know

I hope you hear now

So that when we meet again

I won’t be a stranger to you

 

I was still talking

And now I’m changing

From the little girl you knew

I don’t know what I’ll become

But I’ve plenty more to share

And I can’t be who I was

I’m still turning out

Into whatever I’ll come
