tin roof

the winds are thumping the tin roof so softly the kettle purrs back its soft refrain hiss of calm and all I can do is wonder if you are safe tonight safe in the arms of someone who held you as tight as I if those arms are not in place and if the calm is not on your face then maybe we could take the place of those wanting arms who have lost their place replaced by others who have no clue of the love you are needing and the love I need from you. if only the winds could push my time back to where your love was mine if only the truth that i saw in your eyes would return in the touch of your smile I wish I never never said goodbye I hope to survive long enough to see the return of your love through another’s eyes..
