On The Other Side


Do the birds sing the same
does the rain feel the same
is there love where you are
or is it just the same
can somebody tell me
if you go before me
is the grass much greener
just a little bit greener

Is the grass much greener
living on the other side
do the sun shine the same
do they look at you to blame
can some body tell me
is it a place for me

Does the moon shine
so bright at night
is there love
or do people still fight
can somebody tell me
is the grass much greener
living on the other side

Poem of the Day

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
