Death (For my friend Robert)
If I could hold that moment forever
When laughter spilled in every word
Poured and filled the cracks so empty
Touched this bitter earth.
When time has ceased its hold on me
Donít bring the ending of a life to me
It is just a flower or just the hour
Or the moment when I was me.
Donít curse the earth upon me stacked
In my casket of delusion packed
Dream softly when you go to sleep
Remember me when your sunshine weeps.
