The horrid hollowness of the empty nest,
viewed without a redress, empty nest.

Years of doting, uplifting, caring
bring forth a man of kindness, empty nest.

The sun which rose with his laughter
sets with a mother’s loneliness, empty nest.

Let my heart sing with each memory
of cuddled child breathless, empty nest.

Remembering you, longing for your smile,
brings meaning home, fullness to empty nest.
