Empty Nest - Constanza

Written by: Lee Ramage

Cardboard boxes filled on the floor, Photos gone from nightside table, Where we read a bedtime fable. Twinges as I walk by her door, Her sweet bed where she use to lay; Sits empty yet another day. Happiness, no crying I swore, Accomplishments I am in awe; Her future is a life in law. Time has gone so fast, I want more. That crazy smile and ponytail; always melts my heart without fail. Missing my daughter I adore. So proud and knowing she’ll do well but her absence still hurts like hell.
Cardboard boxes filled on the floor, Twinges as I walk by her door, Happiness, no crying I swore, Time has gone so fast, I want more. Missing my daughter I adore.
