Thunder of her love: (November 19, 2003)

Copyright 2003 Thumper Productions:

Samantha reminded me of things we all share.

-------------------------------

She was only 17

                Too young

                                To start a family

But she met the boy she loved

                And the only thing to do

                                Was go her way

It didn’t matter

That her family didn’t

                Know him

It didn’t matter

                That her friends

                                Said he was wrong

It wouldn’t have mattered

                If the sky had opened wide

                                And said “hey, no way”

All that mattered

                Was the thunder

                                Of her love

------

A year or so went by

                They had a home

                                They had a family

She had the boy she loved

And everything

Was going her way.

It didn’t matter

                That they struggled

                                To make ends meet

It didn’t matter

                They didn’t have

                                A brand new car

It wouldn’t have mattered

                If the sky had opened wide

                                And said “hey, no way”

All that mattered

                Was the thunder

                                Of their love

----- bridge

And then they grew apart

Just a little at the start

The beating of their hearts

Found another drum

--

The distance widened slowly

Although they both said “no way”

We’ll let it tear our love apart

--

But the love we have today

Is finding it’s own way

So you can never say

What will be

--

And so their time as one

Became their time of two

And ‘tho they’d loved each other

There was nothing left to do

It was through(4)

----------- verse

And now she’s 24

                Too young to be

                                A single mother

The dogs come sniffing round

                Don’t want her love

                                But they want more

She holds her children

                Warm against the winter

She holds her children

Safe against the storm

It doesn’t matter

                When the sky, it opens wide

                                And says “hey, no way”

All that matters

                Is the thunder

                                Of their love
