Highlights of a Life

Young and dazzled
So in love
Baby, come to bed

Armed and Afraid
An overseas war
Baby, come home safe

Tired and frazzled
Our family life
Baby, come help me

Old and Alone
Memories, they haunt
Baby, come back

(Had to add this, even though it’s not related to the poem. Soon as I saw the prompt, I couldn’t get the song out of my head.)

  1. Love this! I think we were bitten by the same inspiration bug. It sounds like this song samples Baby Come Back by Player, which is what I was thinking about when I wrote my poem 🙂
