Have You ever passed an old empty house
and noticed how sad it seems?
Have You ever wondered then,
if an empty house ever dreams?

Did You happen to notice in the yard
an old rose bush,thats withered and dead?
Have You ever wondered about that Rose Bush?
where it's Roses pink,or red?

Ah those empty rooms where only echo's live,
and those floors so cold and bare,
those empty curtainless windows
how bleak they seem to stare.

How sad an empty house must be
with no life left inside
with only echo's of the past,
where once, love bloomed,and died.
Bob Mitchum
