Roger Holzheimer: Music

Wordlessly Watching

(Roger Holzheimer)
December 23, 2008
Roger Holzheimer, BMI
wordlessly watching through windows unpaned
my heart sent a love that's unchanged
emptiness, longing filling the time
that once was creative
my music and rhymes

you sat by the fire in linens of cream
i knew your expression was not as it seemed
the smile was of sadness for time passing by
i remembered that smile
i tried not to cry

what happened didn't
but what was can't be
the moments we lost
silently

i stay with my writings although they are balnd
i give up the fighting i can't raise a hand
to reach through the darkness searching for light
loneliness only pervades the night

so i wordlessly watch through windows unpaned
i send a love a love that's unchanged
your smile is of sadness for time passing by
i see your smile
i try not to cry
