    An Unfinished Business

    Today I will sit and listen, To all they have to say; Laughing and talking with them, I will enjoy our special day. Soon they will be grown up, And I shall be alone and old; Oh! How I will miss them, Our house will feel so cold. If only I could hold them, Like a baby still in my...
