PostSubject: Driveway Hugs and Goodbye kisses   Mon Oct 21, 2013 9:33 pm

It never seems there's time enough
To get past all the surface stuff
We fit in all the pleasant things
That living distant always brings

We don't  intend to leave it out
Sharing hearts; relieving doubts
But busy lives and things of fun
keep us ever on the run

We know we're loved, most certainly
Our lives are tied intrinsically
But time for talk seem hard to find
Departure now, seems so unkind

We hesitate, we sit and wait
But time is short, it's getting late
Driveway hugs, our last goodbye
Swallow hard, try not to cry

Loves rope attached; departing hearts
Vision blurred; teardrops start
Out of sight, mile one
Rope is snapped, my heart undone

Goodbye kisses; on their way
So much more I want to say
Wishing I could take back time
And keep my treasures only "mine".

In the house, up the stairs
Sheets to wash, no child there
A fragrance in the pillow case
Close your eyes, see a face

A child's heart can never glean
The deepest love that isn't seen
His "parent eyes" are gently veiled
His children come, then veiling fails

And what I give to those I'll miss,
A driveway hug and goodbye kiss,
Doesn't fill the gap I feel
As distance grows with spinning wheels...

...It never seems there's time enough
To close the gap with words of love
But packed inside the good bye kiss
Is deepest love for treasures missed.
