The same road

I told her
Cause I know
She can understand
She knows it too
This solitude
When we are home alone
When the kids are off
And we stand there
Facing the silence
When the kids are in
And we challenge ourselves
To make the best of days

She knows it
And she can hear it
Without wishing to fix it

I told her
Cause I know
With her, I can let go
Of all the walls I am building
So I can stand still
In front of emptiness
So I can give him
A smile and love
Even when I am feeling low

Wherever others wander
We are on the same road

Keep Going!

I woke up yesterday thinking of the date
November is full of memories
Not ones I regret
But yet just shots of life
And something we could call death

This taste of sorrow
And yet life again taking control
Pushing us on the road
The one we would like to avoid
From a distance it looks lonely
And dark and gloomy
But once we are on
We could see lights
Multicolor sparkles on the side
Colorful papers lanterns illuminating the sky
And people walking too
With dreams deceived and new ones to draw
People like us trying hard
And having faith in something big enough
To make them want to keep going
