No Pictures In The Picture Frames

Written by: Donald Eissler

No pictures in the picture frames
They just hang lonely on the wall
There's no fire in the firplace
No footsteps in the hall
.
Don't know when it happened
Know it wasn't just yesterday
As we were growing older
Our love seemed to slip away!
.
When I would reach out for you
In hopes that you still cared
But no matter what I did or said
You were distant - just not there!
.
They say one can see the future
Just by looking in their past
Should have paid more attention
Would have known this wouldn't last
.
Now someday in the future
I will fill again those empty frames
Build a fire in that fireplace
To see once again its flames
.
I know that I will hear once more
Footsteps echoing down my hall
Finding joy and happiness
With a new love after all
.
I don't know if that's my future
But I know that I shall try
When I give my love to someone else
I'll be aware of yesterdays gone by
