Ravel ravel

Unravel the knit

Pull out the weave

A long yarn lay split

Long time woven

With time and days

Experiences, family

Growing, dances, plays

Santa, college, graduation

Now we’re here

This situation

Unravel years

The pile is large

Of unwoven yarn

Of years so large

Unwoven yarn

Is nothing on the floor

And where are the memories

The joy


The knitting’s done

Forgot the weave

Getting ready

Ready to leave

I’m not too sad

Not too sorry

Just observing

The truth, the story

The truth behind the closed suburban walls

The truth behind the faces small

The truth behind an answer “nothing ”

Really means “a big fat something ”

Ravel ravel

Ravel up again

The life we lead

Begin to mend
