The Rocking Chairs

It's early in the morning The sun has yet to rise Daylight is still hidden In its dark disguise . There is peace and solitude Nothing seems to stir Trees that stand tall and strong Still are nothing but a blur . The coffee that I'm sipping Takes the chill out of the air Only sound that I hear Is the rocking of my chair . We used to rock together Before the sun came up Sharing tea or coffee Each had our special cup . Neither one of us Ever had to say word For just a little smile Every word was heard . Yes It was a special time That I spent with you Rocking in our rocking chairs Was what we loved to do . Now your chairs a rocking With the Man above But let me tell you sweetie Your still the one I love . I rock here every morning Waiting for the sun rise Missing you so very much Tears flowing from eyes . Soon we'll be together I'll be rocking next to you And If we're really lucky They'll be a chair that's built for two
