Today we talked of common things, -
The price of bread, and smatherings
Of family news, -
The children's shoes, -
Tomorrow school begins.
And then we talked of happiness, -
Vacations, picnics, tenderness, -
A summer's dream,
We laughed, and then we cried.
We talked awhile of special days.
The fun we shared ten thousand ways.
Now bitter words,
And broken hearts, -
And summer turned to winter.
We'll talk again of common things,k -
Of happiness each new day brings.
We'll make icecream,
And even dream, -
And time will ease the heartaches.
