This Sunday Morn

by yourself but not alone
for alone is just a fancy word
regarding your own state of mind

alone but not forgotten
surely there’s someone out there
who gives a damn about you

and when the dog curls up beside
rub his ears and say to him
‘Charlie I guess I’ll give a damn about you’

by yourself but not forgotten
this car carries more than just two
pass by your drive and take the day
explore the homes until you realize the phrase

‘just dropping in or stopping by’

and when they open up the door
remember the feeling and the fancy words
regarding your own
state of mind…..
