"AND THE SHOW MUST GO ON"
By Barry David Butler

One day I was born into this world
Came down a tunnel into a bright light...
I was spanked on the tush till I cried
Man was it bright
AND THE SHOW MUST GO ON


I learned to walk and talk
And to find my way around
There was so much here to learn
What a place I had found
AND THE SHOW MUST GO ON

I went go to school and learned
About so many things that were new
It was a powerful & dizzying experience
And I learned and I grew
AND THE SHOW MUST GO ON

Met the girl of my dreams at college
She was everything to me and more
We had three beautiful children
All of them I adore
AND THE SHOW MUST GO ON

The kids grew up and moved away
They had new lives of their own
And me a Suzanne renewed our lives
My how the years have flown
AND THE SHOW MUST GO ON

So now we are all much older
And many years have passed us by
I live my life to the fullest
Until I have to say goodbye
AND THE SHOW MUST GO ON

So now I'm close to the end
And it's amazing how much I've grown
And I live my life to it's fullest
And I wait for God to call me home
AND THE SHOW MUST GO

Barry I know you write from the heart, the here and now"so to speak. To me acceptance is a hard lesson but We manage to get through it, and it seems like we are better with it. I`m not saying stop fighting, I think we all need to do that....but" what is and always will be...will be. good writing from the heart. Lane

damn I hope that makes sense...

Good writing to me means mostly writing what you know and what you'd like to know. I posted a song called BEING DIFFERENT IS BEAUTIFUL and was amazed at how many people felt the same way.

It's all about touching the heart in a deep way. Anybody can write a beer drinking, truck and party song but that's not my assignment. So as one of my songs say Life Goes On And On and on....If as writers we can touch one heart in our lifetimes we have done good. Always follow your heart....and of course Soul. Thanks for the comment and it makes sense.....I'm writing a lot about my Journey from There to Here.

Well someone had a happy life, I'm glad that you enjoyed it. The lyric is one of hope.
