    Watching Clouds

    by Brian Francis

    I've walked this road so many times
    I know most every tree
    My heart is wary, strength all spent
    could someone set me free

    The past is gone, as is my joy
    my heart is on my sleeve
    Missing you tears at my being
    as I have learned to grieve

    I avoid the sun, so I stay inside
    sorting through our memories
    My tears still fall like summer rains
    The hurt just will not ease

    So many things that were not said
    with you still at my side
    In dreams, my heart still tries to mend
    the hurt that hides inside

    every single night I take our walk
    around the west farm lane
    I pause at places that remember you
    And suffer my own private pain

    I watch the clouds from our meadow log
    just like we used to do
    life has stopped, I've been consumed
    I want to follow you
