It Could Be Worse

by Patty Larkin

Oh, it could be worse
They say it will not hurt
This day is the first
It’s like no other

Oh, we’re here again
Where conversation ends
Wondering why we’ve been
Without each other

All of the hours
Lost in sand dollar towers
When you turn your face to mine

Oh, my beach plum love
Beware the mourning dove
Let’s fly high above
Like a feather

All of the hours
Lost in sand dollar towers
When you turn your face to mine
One more time

Oh the days are long
Nothing can go wrong
For life is but a song
My nature lover
