Dry Soul

After all is said and done, we had a pretty good run
We had our ups and downs but we found some common ground
We wore our fingers to the bone, just to make ends meet
Our life was bittersweet

The mortgage is paid in full; we get by on our pensions
The kids still live nearby and the grandchildren seldom cry
I can still pin the tail on the donkey and finish the three-legged race
At the Topsfield County Fair

But long ago I left home with my book of poems
A bottle of wine and one hell-of-an open mind

In Autumn's early twilight Venus shines so bright
Silent we sit and listen to the night
Sometimes I sigh a little too loud, you turn your gaze to me
It’s too late to be free

At the end of the day, there’s not too much to say
How was your day, not bad, how about yours?
I guess that I’m restless in a permanent way
Sparring with my demons every single day

But long ago I left home with my book of poems
A bottle of wine and one hell-of-an open mind
Yeah, one hell-of-an open mind

What happened?
