New Years Day


Mothers won't see their boys any more more

Women won't see there husbands walk through that door 

Children won't have there daddy's for Christmas day

No more celebrations for the living on New Year's Day 


Standing on the wharf watch the clouds wash in

Scanning the horizon looking for smoke stacks 

Knowing there none to come

I'll be watching n waiting knowing I'll be alone

Watching for my dad knowing he'll be home on New Year's Day



Cry cry crying in the rain

Cry cry crying on New Year's Day 


Mommy came down and wrapped her arms around so tight

We both sat quietly watching as rain hid the tears 

Both of us knowing yesterday came to soon

We weren't the only ones as others waited for their man

In the rain

I sit alone and my muse is not

Red glows the end of my cigarette
In the dark I sit again
Focusing on the nothing before me
I flick unseen ash nonchalantly

Thoughts mix with acid and spin 
Scratch at my forehead with thumb
I reach with my other hand
A half drunk mug of none

Lights dance in the distant haze
Marking time so slowly with me
Focus slightly smeared as I view
Tears smudge the rising sun

Another day I live to see
Another day I live to die
As blood of my blood stays on skin
Rust coats my wrists, begin
