A BUSY LIFE

HARDLY NOTICED THE WAR MEMORIAL AS I HURRIED PAST
JUST DEEP IN THOUGHT FOR ANOTHER BUSY DAY
DON`T FORGET TO PICK UP THE KIDS FROM SCHOOL
HAIRDRESSERS APPOINTMENT AT 2.00
MY GOD …HE WAS MADE TO PAY

THINK I`LL BUY SOMETHING FOR MYSELF
MAYBE A NICE TOP OR TWO
COLOUR IS A PROBLEM THOUGH WITH ALL THE CHOICES
…. WHERE HIS EYES BROWN OR BLUE?

I WALKED PASSED A BIT SLOWER ON THE NEXT OCCASION
AND SAW A YOUNG MAN ETCHED IN STONE
ANOTHER BUSY DAY I THOUGHT
MUST BUY SOME CAT FOOD
ENOUGH TIME LEFT FOR A COFFEE?
….. I HOPE HE DIDN`T DIE ALONE

ANYWAY NO TIME FOR THOUGHT
LIFES JUST TOO FAST THESE DAYS
WHAT TIME WAS THAT DENTAL APPOINTMENT?
PICK UP SOME MORE FOOD FOR TEA
THE PAST IS ALL A BIT OF A HAZE

I LOOKED HIM A BIT CLOSER TODAY AND THOUGHT
COULD HE NOW BE A STAR?
HEAD IN THE CLOUDS AS USUAL
NEED TO SORT MYSELF OUT IN THE GYM
HOPE IT DOESN`T RAIN
…. I WONDER WHAT IT`S LIKE TO CATCH A BULLET FROM AFAR

MUST GET MOM A PREZZIE FOR HER OWN UNIQUE DAY
A NICE CARD TO GO WITH SOME FLOWERS
ALL MOMS ARE SPECIAL OR SO MY KIDS TELL ME
CAN`T IMAGINE WHAT SHE THOUGHT WHEN HER SON WAS TAKEN AWAY

STARTING TO NOTICE HIM A BIT MORE NOW
AS HIS NOBLE FACE LOOKS UP TO THE SKIES
SAY `SEE YOU SOON MY FRIEND`
MUST`NT FORGET TO POST THAT LETTER
GO TO THE BANK AND OH… BUY SOME LOTTERY TICKETS
…… I REALLY WISH I KNEW THE COLOUR OF HIS EYES ……….

I
