Sweet dreams locking our days away
Laughing in an array of endless ways
Reaching uphill
Way passed the sky

Flowing in the sweet spring breeze
Moving with a gentle ease
As time sits still
For you and I

Oh how I wish you were here
Wish you were near
Yeah like way back in the day
Come meet me halfway
Oh how I wish you were near
Wish you were here
Long before we lost our way
Come take me away
Oh how I wish you were here
Wish you were near

Starry nights light up the city
Making everything so pretty
Never a chill
We can't deny

Soft lights tender as a spring kiss
Filling every step with bliss
A simple thrill
As we just fly

Oh how I wish you were here
Wish you were near
Yeah like way back in the day
Come meet me halfway
Oh how I wish you were near
Wish you were here
Long before we lost our way
Come take me away
Oh how I wish you were here
Wish you were near

wish you were here
When I saw the title, I thought maybe it was an appeal to the crowd. It's a shame there aren't more people here anymore to appreciate what a pretty song you've written. It's an assumption, but I hear it as a song. It's very universal in its sentiment, and I'm giving it a 10. Thanks for sharing

Wish you were here
Thank you ever so much.... and you heard it right this is a lyric(song).... I think I am as guilty as others on here... I haven't been writing or reading much lately either.... Think the last year has been busy if not out right hard for many.... Sometimes life just gets in the way of all the things we so love to do... Hopefully all that will change soon again...

Lit's Prodigal Sons and Daughters.
Love this've been missed indeed!

Speaking of which, this is directed to many of our old friends who are also "missing":

Too many of our old friends have gravitated to FB which is ok...I'm there too...but are putting all their efforts there and have forgotten the old homestead (!)

We had a wonderful, comfortable space here to write and expand our talents...but as one who has been here for over 10 years, I've seen many of the old crowd fall by the wayside and only come when they have something they want to publish, which may be few and far between...and disappear again!

This place will flourish when we log on to see our old friends and their latest works...or just to read others work and say hello! We have some very talented NEW people here that should be recognized also. So...this is a plea for our "prodigal sons & daughters" to come back home...we'll be waiting...perhaps not with a "fatted calf", but with anticipation to read your latest project and pick up where we left off.

I MISS you guys!

Agreed Bea.... I know I spent more time on Fb in the last year but I do plan on changing that as well ... Well as soon as I heal more and can sit longer reading, etc. I do feel the last election also played a part.... I know I was trying to get the message out and felt Fb to be a better forum for it... Hopefully 2013 we can see a return of many and far more.....

Good Song
Excellent song Terry. It has great rhythm and flow. I'd say your diligent practice is paying off! Hi everyone long time no see.

I thought I'd slip in and add my kudos for this piece. Wonderfully done, I really enjoyed it. It has a catchy rhythm that's got my head writing music for it.

Hello to all, it has indeed been awhile since some of us have been around. I need to get back into the writing swing. I don't know what's kept me away, but I'm going to work on getting back into it.

Miss you guys,

It's a start!
Hi Dave, Jack, Terry et al...big things from little acorns grow...I hope this will set the ball rolling for an influx of old/new blood!

Let's hear from ya, Pen, Lucie, for the rest...YOU know who you are!!!
