I hope this isn't out of place....... In light of Brother Bill's couragious journey.... I wrote this a while back, just something personal, trying to put words, put order, put some sense to the tragedies I myself have had..... and sometimes just feeling, and in my case, writing, is a healing of sorts.... so if I may be indulged so much as to print this, in respect and love for Bill, here it is


Time Only Knows

Lost my mom, and then my dad
Was the only ma and pa I ever had
But I was ready, they werenít young
Lord knows they had many days in the sun

The wind blows,
Time only knows

But before them, I lost my sister
My favorite one, still sure miss her
She told the best jokes, and was a nurse
A world without her is one thatís worse

The wind blows
Time only knows

Iíve lost two sons, I donít know why
If I think about it, itís not hard to cry
Both fine young men, now flying free
With each other, mom, dad and sis for company

The wind blows
Time only knows

And the friends who've went ahead
The words we forgot, or never said
Always in my heart and in my mind
On this sometimes sad caravan of time

The wind blows
Time only knows

Search for meaning, it can drive you mad
And too many reflections will make you sad
Timeís not cruel, and those winds still blow
Donít look for reason, because time only knows

Thank you for posting this, it means a lot to me because we've been down some of the same roads. I thought your introduction said it best, "trying to put words, put order, put some sense to the tragedies" - I struggle with this sometimes and it helps to know that you've found an outlet, and maybe some peace? Time can dull the pain but wounds this deep have a way of being felt forever...my prayers are with you brother

Thanks.....

In the end we should all remember that it is the ride that matters, not the destination.
