Well that maybe
I live in a tiny house tucked away behind some nice big trees
Just me a old man and the dawgone dawg
my daughter shutters when I open my mouth…
The stars go out. One by one.
Darkness creeps upon the night;
bright tears steam upon the sun,
until one dark dawn
we find it gone
and we have lost our light….
How can we bear what tears us apart?
Will we ever stop hearing their cries?
Each one a tear in tears of the heart-
will the day ever come

Before my day starts we always check in with each other.. My Carol is in the UK and of course here I am.. Military Service in Foreign Countries and marriages that do not work out .. That was a small part of her life, and allowing her Son to live with his American Father was also part of her Lifes Choices.. Allowing him to grow up in a Free Country.. But always His Mom with many trips across our great dividing pond..

The sound of lead hitting plate steel
The snap as one zips close by
The force of the explosions
Will this be the day someone will die?
As there doesn’t seem much of any
Certain prerequisites for that choice
One moment they are with you, laughing, talking
The next just the memory of their silenced voice

I am just a man nothing more
I have to answer to only one
