The Eighth and Final Square

with courage face the thing you fear so the pawn becomes the queen

Remember this was your favorite song from Fiddler on the Roof? Loving someone else doesn’t mean I love you any less. I miss you!!

How can I hope to make you understand
Why I do what I do,
Why I must travel to a distant land
Far from the home I love?

Once I was happily content to be
As I was, where I was
Close to the people who are close to me
Here in the home I love…

Who could see that a man would come
Who would change the shapes of my dreams?
Helpless, now, I stand with him
Watching older dreams grow dim.
Oh, what a melancholy choice this is,
Wanting home, wanting him,
Closing my heart to every hope but his,
Leaving the home I love.

There where my heart has settled long ago
I must go, I must go.
Who could imagine I’d be wand’ring so
Far from the home I love?

Yet, there with my love, I’m home.
