"Everyone is looking though some might deny it / And all we want is a little peace and quiet"

"Between us and heaven or hell there is only life, which is the frailest thing in the world." - Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)


A Little Peace and Quiet


I am looking for a quiet place

A quiet place of a quiet grace

The quiet grace of a loving face

Of someone who will actually

Care about insignificant me


Perhaps not very dramatic

Nor terribly acrobatic

Yet interesting some might say

If in an undramatic way


I am looking for a little peace and quiet


And if I can ever find it I will try it

I will try it on with glee

Might you like to come along

To try it on and be with me

Peacefully and quietly strong?


Everyone is looking though some might deny it

And all we want is a little peace and quiet

I have peace and quiet, too much in my home alone now. But memories of Tom keeping with me and grieving getting better as days go by. Have a car to get me out when too quiet and so do like to find peace everywhere. Wish it were continental wide though.

this reminds me of Rod McKuen in some way and I'm not quite sure as to why.. perhaps the ryhming and timing thing...
