Our lives may not have fit together,  but ohhh did our souls know how to dance. -k. Towne jr.


Oh, that you were mine

As you recline inside her shadow

Soft against her breast

Warm within the nest

That you have made

As birds do in the Spring

With hope for everything

Your offspring in your arms

So caught up in the charm

Inside your smile

As I watch you there with her

The feelings make me stir

And I refuse to let them show

I know that I must let go

I can’t bear another minute

Although my world without you in it

Has been pure hell

I can tell you’re doing fine

Since you are not in mine
