Slipping By

Days are slipping by and every sunset brings me closer to you. I silently count the days, hours, minutes….knowing that my stay in this town is over. So many tears shed, which only serve to wash away the smiles. The madness we lived through spared us our lives and our sanity. We are all lucky to have survived the decades of massive excess. The good times came at quite a cost. As I drive away, I won’t look back…my happiness lies in front of me….with you.
