Did You Hear That?

It wasn't what you thought, This big elaborate sound. It was more like a penny Hitting the sullen ground. One day I was there Answering your every call, The next I was the one That didn't know you at all.

If We Could Only

If we could only get along for a day We could sit down with one another. Talk for hours about having our kids How hard it was to raise them But what a joy it was to see them grow. We could talk about all the people we lost Cry with one another as we talk... Continue Reading →
