everything you want

everything you want
and everything you say
seems to become a blur
or a burden in the way

it's all too hard
it's all too much
it's all going to cost
an arm, a leg, and such

why is it these days
that you need all this
and need it now
it seems like such a kiss

of death, or at least debt
to grant each wish and whim
and of course what are we to do
seems like we sink more than swim

never good enough

it's never good enough-
nothing is
and I feel that is the
way it always is

it's not enough for you
it's not enough for me
and we just cannot
let it be

so will we ever win
or find a way to stay
in this crazy game
we play each day

just one week

just one week
is all that's left
before you fly off
from our little nest

how can I take it
how can I not
how can I face it
how can I rest

I am happy for you
and scared all the same
not knowing what will
become of your name

I hope and I pray
I laugh and I cry
I hope that all goes well
as time passes by
