I feel like I'm 2 ½ feet tall again
as I walk through the vacant hallway
with the dim light guiding my path
and the plain white walls surrounding me
life is so different from the perspective
of someone so small
it's amazing the way it feels
to need help, guidance or directions
it's not at all what I am used to
it's amazing how hard it is to walk
when you know not why your somewhere
and how confusion breaks the silence
with every step that you are taking
it's that confusion that reverberates through your heart
and creates wonder

I feel like I'm 2 ½ feet tall again
figuring out life
and at the same time laughing because I know
that nothing is a better pain killer than that
it's amazing how much comfort I find at this height
and how much wonder fills me
as I have yet to receive answers

I feel like I'm 2 ½ feet tall again
almost like I never lived life
I close my eyes and I'm on my tiptoes to reach the countertop
and my mother is asleep
and I just watch her on the couch from the kitchen
in the house alone
I feel that solitude again

I feel like I'm 2 ½ feet tall again
And I've got so much more to learn.
