the long goodbye is winding down
in time to let you go,
the world is wide, the earth is round,
we’re loved more than we know..
I’ve tried to speak the simplest prayer,
I fall down half-way through,
my words are weak as baby birds,
who am I without you?..
the brightest star shines unaware
from light years long ago,
the long goodbye is ours to bear,
and all we have to show..
the world is wide, the night is clear,
we’re loved more than we know…
