Talking is not Listening….

Baby’s born and so we say…

Can’t wait till he talks one day…

Then he speaks we gather round…

Hanging on each precious sound…

——

Days go by his words are few….

Months roll in and years do too…

Soon he speaks better than you…

But his ears are filled with glue….

Somewhere sad along the way….

Been Listening

listening fell in the fray….

birds can sing and donkeys bray…

But ears can’t hear when filled with hay…

——

Ask a person bout their night….

Don’t wait till their love is light…

And their smile may turn to blight…

not too late but maybe might…
