The Kids Have All Been Fed

When you called me on the phone,
I answered and said,
honey, we feel so all alone, 

It's so good to hear from you tonight,
the kids have all been fed,
but, I couldn't eat a bite,

I know we've had our ups and downs,
and our in betweens,
but honey please please turn around,
it's not as bad as what it seems,

Don't tell me it's over now,
we don't need no more bad news,
we've got to find a way somehow,
the kids all need new shoes,

Honey, please turn around,
I know that we'll pull through,
although we've had our ups and downs,
I'd never stop loving you,

We've got to find a way somehow,
it's the kids that feel abused,
Don't tell me it's over now,
we don't need no more bad news,

Please come back home,
the kids have all been fed,
we feel so all alone,

Now nothing seems as right,
I kissed the kids for you tonight,,
and held them tight,

Please say you might.

    Thank you, Lawrence. Terribly sad, yet remarkably beautiful. I love this poem. "Don't tell me it's over now,/we don't need no more bad news,"what a great line! Full of emotion. It is good having you around us. Ruben.

    Lawerence, this is so sad and endearing a song. Sadly, the kids tend to blame themselves in these situations. Thank you for your coments. They are always a pleasure to read! Great song, Lawrence! Love, Robin
