When I think of you I cry
Cause of what was lost in our “love”
And what we have become
Once I saw forever in your eyes
Now I see contempt
Knowing you so well
But not knowing you at all
Til it was too late
A sense of loss and wasted time
Is the fruit of my labor
When instead we should be living
We are surviving
When we should be loving
We are dividing
Happiness is but a word
But the trail on my cheek is all too real
The tear is not because I have lost you
But because I knew you in the first place

Love one another-let God do the worrying,
Rodney

"When instead we should be living
We are surviving
When we should be loving
We are dividing"
all too often, all too sadly true.... beautifully stated, man.

I Love The Smell Of Napalm In The AM!

Steadfast love - I pray neither one gives up hope. Hugs and prayers coming your way.

let our hands communicate what's in our heart. A Wisp of a brush...

Oh, I can so relate. This is put together so well.

Have you ever known the color grey when the nighttime finds you weak
I have, I've walked that road each time; that's where my angel sleeps
