Even When I’m Not In Sight

Even When I’m Not In Sight

On your quiet moments gray
I will write you a lovely verse
To place a smile upon your face
When you need a calming ear
Remember I’m always listening
Even when I’m not here

On the nights you’re feeling cold
Wrap yourself in our love embers
Let my warmth bring heated glow
When you’re feeling alone tonight
Remember I’m always with you
Even when I’m not in sight

“You’re joking.”  Danny was stunned. …

Most importantly, I changed from working non-stop at all hours (really all hours) to working with hours within my control.
