My daughter was here

My daughter was here
For a short little while
And when she was here
She brought me some smiles

Now she’s gone
Back to Houston for now
Where instead of snow
She’s got rain somehow

So both of us suffer
From apartness and clime
But still we are happy
Since we had out time

Family

Family seems to mean more now
Suddenly it is true
That to hug your family over again
Is the exact right thing to do

Why does it always take something bad
To make us all do what’s good
America is pulling together now
Just like we always knew she would

This is the best country anywhere at all
Despite the troubles we may see
But I wouldn’t trade all of those problems
And more anywhere else – not me.
