Tending a garden with loving care
Her friend lost his life on a dangerous dare~
the old man lays his hoe down
Sorrow makes her feel as if she will drown;
and walks to the house for his lunch
she misses her friend, the best of the bunch
topped off with a single slice of apple pie.
and she’s left reaching for his star in the sky.
The days of old have passed away
a time of hard work that brings pride
days filled with tasks and projects
necessary for living and growing and learning
Now too much time with nothing to do
lack of motivation keeps kids down
depression, obesity, meds and pain
makes me wish for those days of old.
