another broken heart

what have you done
how can it be
that all that I've taught
has escaped between you and me

I don't know how to act
or even what to say
when I see you next
will I still feel this way

it blows my mind
and tears up my heart
to know all I've worked for
seems to be torn apart

even if that is not true
it's what I think and feel
I don't know if I will overcome it
or if time truly will heal

a full heart

it does my heart good
when you do as you should
I always knew you could
and so glad that you would

when I hear that you learn
what we have only to yearn
to help you discern
as this life you sojourn

my heart is so full
in my eyes tears pool
while I play the fool
since you are off at school

drought relief

the rain started early
and is still going late
it's rained all day
and it's been great

the ground needs it so bad
the plants and animals too
will it bring relief?
for now it will do

it's been so long since
we had a good hard rain
and I am sure this is not enough
we'll need it soon again

time and time again

time and time

over and over

repeat and repeat

seems to never end

one day it does
