Visits - December 29, 2001

(c) December 29, 2001

Shouldn't I be happy
I wish that I could be
a long drive for a visit
my people came to me

A little conversation
from the other side
the wall that has no mercy
separates my life

Depression washed in sorrow
now sits inside my cell
just a friendly visit
to remind me I'm in hell

Torturing my soul
with news from far and wide
I must put a stop
to visits from free life

No more smiling faces
with love deep in their eyes
the hope is too intense
to carry in my mind

So no more blessed visits
I'll just do my time
and wait upon the day
freedom comes so fine
