The Time Will Come

The time will come

When I will wake up

And not recognize my surroundings.

 

I will soon remember

That I am no longer home.

 

I will wake up in a foreign land

Where i can speak everyone’s language

But no one will not understand mine.

 

The time will come

Where I will walk through a foreign land

I once called “home”.

 

Spotting familiar places

Seeing familiar faces

But not recognizing

What they’ve become

While I was away.

 

The time will come

Where I must readjust

To this familiar yet foreign land

I once called my country

 

Relearning how to live

Like everyone else.

 

The time will come

 

The time will come

 

And oh too soon

 

That time will come
