Lay Me Down

Lay me down

Let clouds fill the sky

Rains fall from heaven

Stars fall from the sky

Hope it seems at first

Is never far away

But years go fast and days are few

I’ve nothing left to say 



I’m going home

Side Note

A side note…this was a short song that I wrote in the late seventies.

My younger brother and I had gone to visit our father, who had been languishing in a nursing home for a number of years.

It was a sad day.

This simple short poem expresses the melancholy of that day.
