# My independence gave me isolation

How much I wished to achieve perfection
to do things my way
without your interferences and suggestions
in my quest to reach a total independence
I avoided you as much as I could
I thought that I know everything that I should
now we are far and afar from each other
once your presence bothered
and now your absence makes my heart grow fonder
this is certainly not what I dreamt

My independence gave me isolation
I now find how lucky was I
to be guided and cared by you
even without my asking
you were always there to make ways for me
My independence gave me isolation

Life feels so disconnected now
even your objections and criticism
now seem to make a lot of sense now
my dream of independence
imprisoned me in a world so unpredictable
I wish I had gained some strength, some wisdom
before choosing to wish for independence
my independence gave me isolation
I now find how lucky was I
to be guided and cared by you
even without my asking

My independence gave me isolation
I now find how lucky was I
to be guided and cared by you
even without my asking
you were always there to make ways for me
My independence gave me isolation
