No News

Kevin Anderson 1965 (Ill)



No news is good news?
Is the message you sending for true?
It's been a month of Sundays or maybe two
Since the last I've heard a whisper
Have you been drab or chipper?

No news is good news is an old adage
So, if that true don't worry bout my disadvantage
Of not knowing if your a big tipper
Or if you're sipping wine from the Big Dipper

You left your mark on my heart
Deafening is the silence on my part
No news is good news about how you do?
No news is the message of good news sent by you?

I joined the United States Air Force in 1986, fully retired in 2016, 30 years of honorable service and of making life do what it does so I can do what I do when I do what I do communicating my thoughts or a few. more…
