Where Did They Go?

Where Did They Go?

Where is that family that called me home?
I woke up one day and they were all gone,…
First I thought they were off on a trip.
A long vacation I wish.
After a week or two,…
Not a clue,….
They took everything with them,…..
Did the rent come do ?
The dog was not even there to bark at the strangers that came to look,…
What`s that sign out front,…..
What is it they want to sale?
I waited and waited,….But they never did came back.
Only the ghost of a youngen,..
Who died when he was ten.
I think he was looking for the family that lived here,….back then.
Every now and then,….I`d see one drive by on the road out front.
Why would they not stop,….and say hello again ?
Never did have a sale,….
So I just stood here alone and dying,….
Wasting away to the bitter end!

    this is really great in everyway. The writing and the art go so well together and I even felt sad for the home.

  • Thank you Mark,….You know,…..I feel a little something every time I see one of these old abandon homes,…..A little sad,…and a lot of wonder,.. about what happen to the families that lived there,….
