I found you today to find you are gone.
Who is it decides when it’s time to move on?
Your lonely farewell by me was unheard
Down this two way terrain – never a word.
But today the words reached over oceans and years
Now I offer to you my absentee tears
As different directions tore us apart
Your generous spirit still sang in my heart
The smile I missed then I miss now even more
Like the music you made – all gone before . . . .
Down that lonesome road back home.
‘Chapter 33’ - Para 2 - Brother to Brother.’
He handles life’s rejections with dignity and grace
As he compromises daily with the years
Accepting that his destiny is ever off the pace
He’s a constant source of sadness to his peers
Yet his past defies his future as he lets it slip away
Behind the dignified expression of a clown
Being grateful for the challenge to decide with each new day
If the going up is worth the coming down.
With apologies and gratitude to Kris Kristofferson
