By Gypsie-Ami Offenbacher-Ferris


The road from there to here
is long
From here to there
not so long

A sad mournful song
is right on key
A song mournful and sad
way out of tune

The sun sweltering hot
feeding flora and fauna
A hot sweltering sun
burns plants to the ground

A heart lonely and cold
grows still in the chest
A cold lonely heart
warms at your touch
