Rest well Gordie

It was just a matter of time

I knew

You warned us

Gave us a last memory

To hold onto

You gathered us round and we watched like children

A magical night 

Performing your last goodbye

I was grateful for the chance to whisper my thanks

And yet all the same

The loss is just too heavy

And somehow life…

It still goes on 

In the only way it can

With your words

With your music

To get us through

Another night

Waking to see what the morning has brought us

Already I know 

Tomorrow won’t be any better


It will never bring another you
