Malcolm Brooks finally learns to love someone and also let them be free.
I want to be that way with you.
I missed you so much, you moved to Boston
To a new home with new friends
Who fight the dragons you fight, fear the things you fear
Swear to stay together to be strong
All this in the week of the Boston Marathon
Runners run, trusting no bombs explode
I want to be that way with you
I want to love and let you walk your own road
You sent a photograph of a cappuccino
I think I know that café
No, you say, I’m at another café
One that I found by myself
I want to show I love you, I want to show I care
But will it feel like I am trying to control you,
Even when I’m not there

Facing one’s past can bring solace and hope.
