How astonishing it is that language can almost mean...
and frightening that it does not quite.

The memorial was beautiful. Tears and laughter. Old photograph albums, like drowning. A life flashing before my eyes I'm trying to hold onto. There's long ago in our light-hearted days...you in your leather jacket. Just some guy out there in the middle of the desert with too many stars on his hands. One of my sons hands me a glass of wine and my favorite picture of his father. My brother-in-law manages to get some pictures up on a big screen. Doug, my son Jon found your video on the web. Collective tears, then. A room full. More stories. Our life was so long and so short. The east coast sky is black and blue. Dark and high and final.

I can hear the others...
Going on, laughing,dancing
Waiting,
For me.

I will not be back yet,
Not as they knew me.
I will not be back soon
To the table where
The cards are dealt and
The whiskey flows.
Deal me out,
Play this hand without me.

I will dance alone
For awhile, waiting until
I understand the full measure
Of what I had and
What I lost.

They will not know
Until it happens to them,
How one day you
Can be in this world and
The next in Hell...

Nothing matters more
Than love and
Nothing matters less
Than finding it again
Once you've lost it.
Starting over
Will take more than
I have to give
Right Now.

Spring will have to start
Without me this year,
I have no heart for flowers and
New beginnings...

Yet...

Thirteen when I met him. Saw him, actually. He was 'home on leave'. A crowd around him because playing basketball for the Army was his job...and Army had just beat Navy. This is how he proposed, "Marry me or goodbye." Mick said Stu married me because he figured I'd irritate him enough to keep him interested.

Well, heck, Ro. If being irritating is enough to keep a man interested, I should have droves of them following me.

I've got you in my thoughts and prayers, Ro. Wishing you lots of sweet dreams and memories that bring you joy and comfort. Big hugs.

I sit in the dark in the back of the saloon...
What is between my table and the dusty
street is twenty feet that is
on the very edge of Hell...
The townspeople say they are sinners: the townspeople say they are evil...
The reality is that they are just Cowboys and
they are very much alive and much of the
rest of this town has already died... I talk to
the Lord and I Know what is Evil
and what is not,
which is why I hold services here and
not in a church....
These men make a decision
every time they put the whiskey to their
lips, every time they put the
tobacco to their mouths....
They make a decision between a
longer, duller life or the life
that they are choosing to live....
Yet I can see the desperation in
their eyes; I can see
that for every year that they age,
they remove themselves another year from their
childhood and their youthful dreams...
I can see that the only time
They will smell the
fragrance of a lady is
when they choose to pay for her...
I can see that they care not a
bit about Eternity, but only for today...
But, that is Just Alright
with me and the Lord


If everybody went to heaven...they'd run out of room...
Rev Buckman

Love went from forever to memories
In the time it took them to blink
Romance is just a wisp of smoke
It disappears when you stop to think

They fit together, damaged and broken.
Eyes wide open, dreams unspoken
Hearts left alone, get tired and weak
Turn hard and cold, no breath left to speak

Eyes were recognized, stumbling round in the dark
Unfamiliar explosions, dancing on sparks,
Nights they went crazy, the days they went sane,
Desire fed the river that drowned out the pain

Forever to memories in the blink of an eye,
Happily ever after falling out of the sky,
Do dreams become wishes and wishes become lies?
Surrender's alright, we see with more than our eyes.

The same spirits haunt them both at night
Whispering shadows, doubts and fears.
Yesterday's hopes are tomorrow's choices
Moments of passion, hours of tears.
