The Still Quiet Air

The still quiet air
The freezing touch of his hand
Death is by my side

Wake up Midas

it isn't your time.

Those dogs had

no right to take

you from me.

"Wake up baby!"
I'm crying,

"Wake up!"

 

Please don't leave

so soon.

I'm the one

that let you outside.

 

Wake up,

oh please wake up.

The Last Day of Summer

You left us on
the last day of Summer.
Today is the
first day of Fall.
My tears are
falling for you.
Good bye my baby,
my LUCKY CAT.

Our Peanut Puppy

Silly little Puppy,

silly little Dog.

She's hyperactive,

she's an attention hog.

 

I love her

to pieces,

with her I

love to play.

But sometimes I

wish she'd just

go away.

 

For just a

few minutes,

to give me

 a rest.

 

Cause sometimes

my  patience,

she does test.

If only I had known

what was happening,

If only I had known

where you lived.

 

If only I had known,

I would have gone

into your home.

I would have

taken you out.

 

If only I had known,

I would have taken

you into my home.

I would have fed you.

He Didn't Care

entry picture

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the day of her death

he didn't cry.

Everyone said

"He doesn't care!"

 

On the day they laid

her to rest

he didn't cry.

Everyone said

"He never loved her!"

 

On the one month anniversary

of her death he was found

lying next to her grave.

An empty bottle of poison

The Air is Still

The air is still, quite

The freezing touch of his hand

Death is by my side

The Price of Freedom

A ghostly image of a soldier

stood in the background,

as a mother with a babe in her

arms stood by a grave site.

 

She lowly whispered, "Father

father. He gave his life so that

others might live."
