Beyond Those Mountains

Poem By Bill Simmons

Beyond those Mountains
Far across the sea
Somewhere she waits at home
I know she misses me

She doesn't know that I am free
From the letters that I keep
I've played my part says this purple heart
She gets what's left of me

I've seen sounds and sights one might
Find so hard to believe
And each time I would see such things
A piece of me it fell from me

The war is over for me now
Alone she waits for me
I only hope she accepts what is left
And that there is enough to keep

I don't feel victoriously
Part of me died in those fields
Some they say in time we forget
I don't believe I ever will

Honey I am coming home
Back home where I belong
But the boy that you once knew
I'm afraid is forever gone.

Every time I'm near you
My heads a spinning wheel

This thing that they call love
That so many are in search of
What some they may find and some lose in time
Only the lonely dream of

He climbs up on his tracter
Starts up his henry ford
Mows some in his pasture
For a while til he gets bored

Unconditional Love

Your puppy licked my hand today
He doesn't know that you are gone
I reached down, he came to me
He ran right into my arms
