Where We Once Perched
by Keith Overstreet
The storms came through, the rain, oh so cold.
A chill fills my bones.
My strength is gone,
I can't hold on.
After you flew away I waited for you- so long.
The years passed but you never came.
Without you the sorrow is so hard to bear.
We were like doves, mates for life- weren't we?
The ants are coming, I can hear their march.
I don't have much time
I'll be gone with the setting sun
should you see it set, I'll wave good-bye.
The angels are here
they are more beautiful than ever told or pictures seen.
they said they have come to take me home
so I must go.
'for better, for worse...' we once said,
forgive me the worse.
I loved you so
