The One Not There ©2007 Doug Spears Sunshine’s almost forgotten here, Can’t remember where we were this time that summer, But I do remember bitter tears, and fears, Of the storm clouds and the thunder, Choices made and bridges burned, Doubt can make you lie awake and wonder. In the pictures of your children, Do you see the shadow of the one not there, Sometimes I try so hard to listen, For a voice that’s whispered softly like a prayer, Healing leaves a scar sometimes, Traces of the pain that’s not forgotten. Now the road to hell is paved with good intentions, And there’s a price to pay for our choices that we bear, There is no going back, no absolution, Just the haunting shadow of the one not there. Sometimes in the morning, When the dew lies soft like diamonds on the grass, As you stand there at the window, Do you glimpse a faint reflection in the glass, No right to judge, no one to blame, No consolation for an aching conscience. Now the road to hell is paved with good intentions, There’s a price to pay for our choices that we bear, There is no going back, no absolution, Just the haunting shadow of the one not there. Sunshine’s almost forgotten here, Can’t remember where we were this time that summer, But I do remember bitter tears, and fears, Of the storm clouds and the thunder, Healing leaves a scar sometimes, Traces of the pain that’s not forgotten. Not Forgotten . . . Don’t you wonder . . .
