I wish you were here … or do I?
I wish you were with me to cheer.
I’d love to again have you near,
enjoy springtime rambles,
ashamed of our grumbles;
I wish you were here just to chat.
But I’m glad you’re not here when we see
the carnage and hate on T.V.,
the drunkenness, vomit,
and rape that comes from it,
I’m glad you’re not here to see that.
