Kind of Wish You Knew
You'll never know how much
my souls been touched by yours
like soft, warm winds blown through the trees.
You'll never know how oft
where I will keep
your clever songs, saucy smiles, and jokes -
those happy times I think of most.
You'll never know how long
is lost while haunting dreams
of you light up those bygone scenes.
You'll never know the love I feel
must I remain a stone
to laugh and hope and cry alone?
- Holly Bates
We're just an ocean full of faces;
And I often wonder why,
This world has gone so far astray,
And so many men must die.
And while I'm living on this forsaken earth,
I meet so many people who just want to
I don't know what it is that I'm searching
for; If I could open the door
What a help it would be.
We'll think back on the fools who lay dead
in the street;
How the gutters ran red, and burnt flesh
And when things had cooled from that devouring heat,
Who had won; Who left to think?
- Eugene McDonald
