There is solace in these solitudes

The early morn and break of dawn

The rising stretch to crowing calls.


We’re lucky here to sleep in peace.


There is solace in this time alone

Yet early morn I always see

A time to watch him deeply sleep


Not dying people at our feet


There is solace in our time apart

To know he will be back again

Within my arms, and so my heart


At least I know he is alive


Keeps watch by day and mostly nights

That he will be away from me

I pray him safe and not alone


A reminder comes from far away.

Some people never had the chance

To say the words before they went.

At least we do and so we should

One word not to be remiss amongst the
ones that we may miss.

Lets not forget our fortune
And not forget our pain
