You told me you wanted to go to Kentucky

It was years ago, seems like an eternity away

But that's what you wanted

And I'd forgotten

It was a distant memory

Something that happened when we had simpler minds

Before everything

Before everything

When every day was sugar cubes and caramel

Why did you want to go to Kentucky?

Wasn't it because of Sharon Creech?

Because she was your favorite author

And her books were usually set in Kentucky?

Before everything

Before you cut your hair

It was so much shorter

And for the first time

You started straightening it

When the pieces of my heart were not yet shattered

Kentucky

Have you changed your mind?

It's a thing from a different life

From a different person

Something foreign in this new world

A remote island in my ocean of thoughts

Before everything

Things changed

But I hope you, at least, found Kentucky
