Went By the House the Other Day
Walk by the old house today
Where the rusted screen door laid
Still empty after all these years
Creaking floors that held so many tears
Clapboard siding lost all of its memories
Of what the colors used to be
Broken fence letting the weeds out
Now covers the old living room couch
Walk down the driveway today
Where the kids road their bikes and played
It’s sad it never did sell
All our dreams that went away and fell
Closed the gate when I left and don’t know why
I think it was something in me deep inside
The place has become quite the eye sore
I won’t be going back anymore…

Some memories have to be put to rest ...
Excellent metaphor -- I identified with so much of this.
