She’s finally coming home


My daughter is currently on her way home after being in Greece all summer. I am writing this from my hotel room, while waiting for her flight to come in .

It has been a very long summer without my daughter, and I can’t wait to see her. I know she will be different and all grown up from all her experiences she had.

This summer was a summer of finding herself. Of experiencing how she fits in with the family she left behind years ago, and while doing so, she realized that things were not the same as she had remembered. Throughout the summer, there were issues that arose with her father that weren’t so pleasant. As those issues came in waves, she learned how to cope with them. She also had the opportunity to experience her generation in her home country, and realized how different the kids are there as opposed to here. It’s all part of finding yourself and I believe she just might have.

This song reminds me of her. I would sit and listen to this song on the days that I missed her most.

Now that she’s back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there’s a time to change, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey

But tell me, did you sail across the sun?
Did you make it to the Milky Way
To see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated?

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star?
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me
While you were looking for yourself out there?

But tell me, did the wind sweep you off your feet?
Did you finally get the chance
To dance along the light of day
And head back to the Milky Way?

And tell me, did Venus blow your mind?
Was it everything you wanted to find?
And did you miss me
While you were looking for yourself out there
