WATCHED the clock upon the wall and how it’s hands shook me.
It has been years since you left me.
I watch the skies wondering
if the clouds speak to me.
Oh since that moment when the ground fell apart
i felt there’s nothing oh nothing
that can make me feel better
like a river under a bridge
without sure footing /
It’s been several days \ since i touched
the fabric of your favorite dress
and how life took you away
and now that you’re gone there’s nothing
i want any longer.
If i had a pet, that dog would cry
cause there’s nothing to fill this void.
Got the call at the doorstep
when the police came giving me the
death sentence of where life went wrong.
i placed my arms around the trooper
weeping saying, “I went to the drug store
and she went for a jog.”
“Nothing compares to a deep pain without
a remedy sir.” Said the officer with a tear
in his eyes.
I drew away.
It’s been so long without you here.
I console myself with a ringing song
inside my heart telling me, “Where did
life go wrong?”
This lonely tears falling singing, “why did life go wrong?”
Well, it’s just life. And another knock upon
the door but just another fool ~~ i opened
it and saw someone with brilliant light
telling me there’s more to life and just wait
just wait you will see son.

I drew away.
Jesus, I drew away. All the flowers she planted
in the backyard have died. But I will give it
another try but never with Love. Dear. Never.
