Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

but what if you are blind

Smell the flowers and crumple letters

from a love that once was mine.

A bird singing in a tree

struck by lightening and burning

children playing and bullies fighting

for things that they are yearning.

From birth to death

family and friends do fun and fuss

Spouse and children are gathered around

there's one more gone and it grieves us.

Some people write poetry

while others, they write songs

about all things good and bad

about the rights and wrongs.

Take a penny leave a penny

a day late and a dollar short

always more month at the end of the money

hard to starboard while leaving port.

Work all day to sleep at night

to put your kids through school

Work all night to sleep at day

they love you but you're such a fool.

Wanted to have a family

but have no time to spend

Thrills and bills take all you've got

from humble beginnings to bitter end.

Some people write poetry

while others, they write songs

about all things good and bad

about the rights and wrongs.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

but what if you are blind...
