Us by Barbara Lee

Us

 

 

You are not around

Now I'm slowing down

A life's history of just us two

A brother and sister me and you.

 

You are not around

Now I'm slowing down

To share our childhood when

We played when we were ten.

 

You are not around

Now I'm slowing down

To tell me stories of your time

And listen lovingly to mine.

 

You are not around

Now I'm slowing down

To pop in and say hello

When you and I are feeling low.

 

You are not around

Now I'm slowing down

For me to ask you how you are

Memories of us together now seem

so distant and so far.
