The Neighbor

~

I prayed to have a neighbor,
A neighbor such as thee.
And if I had some extra time,
I’d come and visit thee.

These times find me so busy,
I’m sure you must be too.
Where is the time to visit,
The way neighbors used to do.

I find myself a running,
Each and every day.
I wish I had a moment,
To hear what you have to say.

If only we could visit,
I wish we had the time.
It would be nice to visit you,
And hear what’s on your mind.

Today’s the day I have the time,
To come and visit thee.
But in the paper I just read,
Your funeral is at three.

Footnote:

Now is the time to visit…now is the time to say.

Now is the time to be there…before their gone away.

Whisper Their Names

They remember those days of youth with each passing year, as the image in the mirror appears much older now. Someday, the dust will fill in the footprints they made in this life, but memories will whisper their names.
