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 of their death

Then reminisce at all the time we had with them

Discuss how important they were in our lives.

We could tell another about jobs we had

Laugh as we discuss how terrible we were at some of them.


If we could only get along for a day

We would probably find out

We have so much in common

That we should have been friends

All these years.
