Ode To My Roof

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Always a shelter to cushion my dreams,

has happily been my lot.

What a fortunate soul,

am I, am I.


Forever a roof at the end of each day,

to protect from the wind, rain, and cold.

A wartime bomb that shatters my dreams:

a friend close at hand to gather me in.

What a fortunate soul,

am I, am I


Slate, tile, canvas or steel,

are in place, as day becomes night.

No cardboard box, or pavement are mine.

Not for me the dark lonely sky.

Always a roof

to cushion my dreams.

What a fortunate soul

am I, am I.
