I lost myself can you help me find her? Can’t remember her face or the sound of her laughter, somehow it stopped in the midst of disaster.

I turned around to see a stranger staring at me, that mirror had been there all these years, but who is that woman and why the tears?

So much time spent being strong, pushing forward and moving on. Not once within the chaos did I stop to see I had moved on but forgot about me.

I left myself so far behind that the memory of me has slipped my mind.  So please help me find who I used to be, I need the strength, the smile, I need to be me.
