It won't be Long

As I stick my head out of my chilly cabin covers,
and  realize winter is still here.
my thoughts of a garden, 
and the promise of a pardon, 
all but disappear.

I tuck my head back into, 
the comfort of the warmth, 
my body has created.
I drift away to the summer days, 
just before,
you and I had parted.

The leaky roof gives the pan a tune, 
now stuck in my dreamland mind.
When you taught me the two-step, 
in the middle of the room,
and the children all laughed, 
till they cried.

The nights by the camp-fire,
telling stories and lies,
with the family and friends alike.
There was always a fish, 
that just got away,
and the stories always grew in size.

I awake to the reality, 
that I'm all alone,
you are not here, 
and the children are all grown.
all that's left inside,
are memories and miles,
wasted on weary old bones.

I have an appointment today,
one you know I'll keep.
It's a bit cold out, 
and the snow is kind of deep.
But I'll make it just the same,
as I always do, 
when ever I come to visit you.

Third row down, 
second on the left.
My heart always drops, 
when I think of it.
I know I always say it won't be long, 
till we're back together, 
in each others arms.

You always say, this old ticker is strong,
even though it feels weak, 
as life goes on.
You know I hate good-byes, 
but I guess I have to go.
I just find it hard to say, 
to an old piece of stone.
