A tribute inspired by
(and including song titles from)
(8/13/1951 – 12/16/2007)
Hearts and Crafts
Like Icarus ascending,
the higher you climb
the more you are lost in the sun.
You’re wishing on the moon and stars, but
it’s too soon to be on your way,
there’s no reason to run.
Someone’s been telling you stories
of stolen moments in heart hotels,
ghosts and exiles in empty cages –
all just souvenirs of hearts in decline.
This need not be our last farewell.
Trust in the morning sky. Down the road
wisteria whispers in the wind
and promises made
in the innocent age
are still within the reach
of this heart.
