If Those Lips Could Only Speak

28 Jul

He stood in a beautiful mansion surrounded by riches untold
And gazed at a beautiful picture that hung in a frame of gold
Was a picture of a lady, so beautiful, young and fair
To the beautiful life-like features he murmered in sad despair
If those lips could only speak and those eyes could only see
If those beautiful golden tresses were there in reality
Could I only take your hand as you did when you took my name
But it’s only a beautiful picture in a beautiful golden frame
He sat there and gazed at the painting, then slumbered, forgetting all pain
And there in that mansion in fancy she stood by his side again
Then his lips, they softly murmered, the name of his once sweet bride
With his eyes fixed on the picture he woke from his dream and cried
If those lips could only speak and those eyes could only see
If those beautiful golden tresses were there in reality
Could I only take your hand as you did when you took my name
But it’s only a beautiful picture in a beautiful – golden – frame…

    Only a beautiful picture, but it meant so much, and spoke to him… Some pictures can say a thousand words Ian, and if only they could speak what tales they could tell. xPenx

    The Norway Nutter is certainly certifiable and, God Willing, will serve his time, then be transferred to a secure unit to live out the remainder of his days.

    Hard to believe he did what he did, but the fact he kept shooting until the REAL Police arrived, then just calmly surrendered instead of fighting to the finish shows just what a worthless shit he really is.

    My heart tells me they should have shot him then and there, but he didn’t give them the excuse…

    God Bless!

      I would pin the medal on the cop that could have shot him , sadly protocol in law dictates the outcome even if the average guy on the street knows the way the law should react
