Where hide our angels tonight? (Lyric/Poem)

Dangling toes in the water on Fourth of July,

Remembering times before never saying goodbye

How did the world get confusing?

When we were so young and amusing

.

I look out to see and wonder:

Where hide our angels tonight?

.

Now the coffee keeps on brewing

I yearn for times before going

When laughter never stopped growing;

And friendships and lovers kept flowing

– Like drinks in a park

.

Strolling along the pathway, living life’s farce

As fireworks flash, and light up, my way in the dark,

Didn’t you know we would do it?

If we’d just held on tight, right on through it

.

I look out to see and wonder:

Where hide our angels tonight?

.

Now the coffee keeps on brewing

I yearn for times before going

When laughter never stopped growing;

And friendships and lovers kept flowing

– Like drinks in a park

.

Watching boats out on the water, sail far away

Questioning whether it’s them, who’s now astray

Look at what’s left, it’s a mess;

I’ve done nothing so wrong to confess.

.

I look out to see and wonder:

Where hide our angels tonight?

.

Now the coffee keeps on brewing

I yearn for times before going

When laughter never stopped growing;

And friendships and lovers kept flowing

– Like drinks in a park

.

When the work is not viewed and shared, the artist loses hope, and the birth of new art ceases to be imagined, or I cannot be bothered to post… which is irrelevant really with so few viewers!
