"Have you seen the way he looks at you, the way his expression softens and his eyes are like stars...?" - Ara Weston

Still it stays

With an iron grip

I can't shake it

Can't make it slip.


No matter this burden

Its sweet and loving

Knows me like no other

Don't care how I'm living.


Thirty years on

Got nothing to gain

Tied around my ankle

My sweet ball and chain.

My friend Greg wrote a song called "ball and chain" and inspired this.
