Some days you just have to drop the tailgate....verse

Updated on May 15, 2014

I do it just out of spite
there is so much we have to do
too much at times
Just once in a while though
just drop the gate
park near a river
and sit

For me that works but for you?
is it the back porch
and a cup of coffee?
Or bending down to rub the
dogs ears?
And smiling
tell me ?

And this may be the only way that we
can win in this life
I know my friend
someone needs you right now
but what about you ?
Is it time
come on I'll sit with you

Come to me tell me
what about you?
Life is just too damned draining
If I could gift you one thing
it would be to just drop
the tailgate
