Remember that house ..
when you were a child
the house that everyone thought was haunted
you know the one….we all had one…
you faced your fear and entered the house on the hill
A wonderful story written for my picture by:iconmahjongmonkey:
I want to live in that house on a hill.
The joy I could share
With the one I love near
As we live in that house on a hill.
The sun will shine through on each window sill.
We’ll dance in the kitchen
Of that house on a hill.
The nights will be calm
But we don’t have to be still.
There is much to enjoy
In that house on a hill.
I’ll dream happily of the present we share.
I won’t have a care as long as he’s there,
And we’re in that house on a hill.
I’ll smile and sing,
All of our hopes will take wing
As we grow in that house on a hill.
But I just sit and stare
At the shadows in there.
Empty window panes
And the garden that snares
My sad little house on a hill.
The clouds in the sky fail in deterring
My sunny imagination.
It’s with a hopeful tear
That I turn away
From that abandoned house on the hill.
