New Lyrics

 

Dear Chester,

The first time I heard you left

It put a huge void in my soul

Knowing I'd never hear your words again

Made me break down and lose control

 

And although you didn't know me

You inspired and you showed me

The side of you that's a part of me

The pain I felt in your melody

 

But your memory will never fade

You'll be remembered just the same 

Hmm, and no one else can take your place

And you should know this world won't be the same

 

Dear Chester,

I was a kid at your stage

But I have grown so much since then

And I still recall the crowd and the cheers

That amazing experience

 

And although you didn't know me

You inspired and you showed me 

The side of you that's a part of me 

The pain I felt in your melody 

 

But your memory will never fade

You'll be remembered just the same

Hmm, and no one else can take your place

And you should know this world won't be the same

 

And your energy 

Resonates with me

Set your spirit free

Set your spirit free

Set your spirit free

Set your spirit free

 

But your memory will never fade (set your spirit free)

You'll be remembered just the same (set your spirit free)

Hmm, and no one else can take your place (set your spirit free)

You should know that this world won't be the same

 

Dear Chester,

Dear Chester

Lausa

A DARK VEIL SO THIN,
THE CHASM WIDER THAN THOUGHT,
THE PAIN SOMETIMES FELT?
Author's Notes/Comments: 

If you have ever lost someone that meant a lot to you, I'm sure you can relate. The plane between this world and the next is ever so slight, delicate, and uncertain. It is good to know that and understand never take for granted anything that means something to you. This is a dedication to a good friend.

Life's Mosaic

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this in contemplation as to how my life is now compared to "the good ole' days" of my life. We all suffer setbacks, loss, and have to cope with the current condition of our lives.

Squirrels Screaming in Spring

Tales Fom The Fur
Author's Notes/Comments: 

My stepdaughter was telling me about two squirrels that were making a fuss at her one day when she and a close friend were hanging out at a park near our home. It may not be a masterpiece poem but I was so inspired I had to put the images in my head to words.
