Thanks for taking me back
I have nowhere else to go 
I’ve analyzed my thinking
It’s a good thing you see
Getting off track isn’t healthy

Physical sobriety is not new 
I have a very short memory 
Don’t be sorry for these few
Relapses are part of my story 
They aren’t the entire spiel 

More than thoughts or deeds
These are the seeds of us 
Of working with God to heal
Of meeting our spiritual needs
Helping us feel less guilty 

As we grow closer to God 
We have emerged already 
Lovingly hugging our friends
We laugh and look forward
To yummy chocolate and tea!
