Wish I knew how to leave the song for you to hear but just accept the fact that I love that song...e


Brings tears to my eye,

Shivers run the length of my spine,

A smile does cross my lips,

A sad smile all the same…


For a time I miss,

When friends became my sis,

Rampant was dancing & smoke,

Worked then as a bouncer,

Till of life’s reality I awoke…


What a feeling,

She sang it with gusto,

Just listening now brings on some healing,

But those times I do certainly miss,

I still remember everyone I knew,

So many now dead, left so few…
