EMPTY NEST


EMPTY NEST

S.JENSEN ©2018

SITTING HERE

MUSIC FLOWING

CORNER GLIMPSES

PASS BY

ONCE CONVERSATION

MEANT EVERYTHING

I TRY IN MY HEART

TO CHERISH IT ALL

AS YOUR SO OUTSIDE

MY REACH NOW

IT TOOK ME DEEP

INTO UNCOMFORTABLE

ZONES

TO LET GO

WHERE ALL I WANT

TO DO IS HUG YOU

AND LAUGH AND 

SHARE EVERY MOMENT

WITH YOU

YET ITS SO SILENT

NOW

AND I FIND WAYS

TO PASS THE DAYS

KNOW THEY ARE

TICKING AWAY

AND HOW WHEN

IM GONE

YOU WILL BE OK

YET ITS STILL THERE

SOME DAYS

I JUST NEED YOU

WHEN THE MOON

IS NEW

ITS MISSING JUST

LIKE ME

THE CHILD WAS

ENOUGH TO LOVE

TIL ALL GROWN UP

THE NIGHT IS ALL

DARK

TRANQUIL

EVEN THOUGH

THE STARS

ARE ALL HIDDEN NOW

MY RAINBOW WAYS

LAY SO DORMENT

LET IT ALL GO

IN THE BLINK

TO BE WITH THE

ONE THAT MY HAND

NEEDS TO MELT WITH

AND NEVER LET GO

OH WHERE TO GO

ROUND AND ROUND

RING AROUND THE

ROSE BUSH

THEN WE ALL FALL

DOWN...
