Song Lyric Sunday – Last


This week’s theme is “Last” from Helen Vahdati’s Song Lyric Sunday

I immediately thought of “At Last” by Etta James, but I opted for this version by Beyoncé when she sang it to the First Couple at President Obama’s first inauguration.  It was a very moving moment for me and I will never forget it.  I hope you enjoy it too.


Have a great Sunday!

Like snowflakes falling
Silently in the night
I am unaware of the beauty
About to unfold in my sight

You stand in front of me
After a lifetime of years
Memories roaring back
Bringing with them tears

Separated as teenagers
Daddy with a shotgun
A baby on the way
Our parents come undone

You travel east
And I am sent west
Never meant to be
We were told it was for the best

You served our country
Our baby was adopted
Turning away from my family
It was never what I wanted

I left them all in the past
My spirit had been broken
Living a better life alone
Another word was never spoken

Here you are now
A ghost from before
A buried secret
We could never ignore

Your smile the same
It’s as if no time had passed
The lonely years forgotten
We are together at last
