UNDERNEATH THAT HARVEST MOON

October's grace surrounds me
With a moon of harvest gold.
Soon his birthday will arrive
Without him growing old.

Autumn leaves and pumpkins
Decorate the silent graves.
Orange and golden flowers
Remind me of the coming days.

I walk the concrete sidewalk
As I think about the past.
I look beyond the statues
At the shadows that they cast.

So many lie there near him
They, too, didn't live so long.
The distant mountains whisper
"Something seems so very wrong"

I sit there on the granite bench
Staring at his name in stone
I ask him as I always do
Please, Luke, please come home.

I know that it is getting late
I should be leaving soon
But I'm waiting, always waiting
Underneath that Harvest moon.

AUTUMN LEAVES

Another day another life
Passes by just like mine
It's not complicated

Another mind
Another soul
Another body to grow old
It's not complicated

Do you ever wonder if the stars shine out for you?
Float down
Like autumn leaves
Hush now
Close your eyes before the sleep
And you're miles away
And yesterday you were here with me

Another tear
Another cry
Another place for us to die
It's not complicated

Another love that's gone to waste
Another light lost from your face
It's complicated

Is it that it's over or do birds still sing for you?
Float down
Like autumn leaves
Hush now
Close your eyes before the sleep
And you're miles away
And yesterday you were here with me

Ooh how I miss you
My symphony played the song that carried you out
Ooh how I miss you
And I, I miss you and I wish you'd stay

Do you ever wonder if the stars shine out for you?
Float down
Like autumn leaves
Hush now
Close your eyes before the sleep
And you're miles away
And yesterday you were here with me

Touch down
Like a seven four seven
Or stay out and we'll live forever now

THE VACATION

We drove down from the mountain top
To another place and time,
The town where he took his first breath
In nineteen seventy nine.

We walked the streets of Soda Springs
And thought about his smile.
We saw the place where he was born
And we cried there for awhile.

We watched the geyser touch the sky
As drops of sadness touched the ground.
We searched the town of Soda Springs
Where hidden memories could be found.

The playground's baby swing hung still,
So we gave it a gentle push.
We thought we heard him giggle
Even though his voice is hushed.

We Passed the house where we all lived
When he was a baby boy.
Recalling special moments
That will forever bring us joy.

We went out to the little park
Where he used to laugh and play.
We stood there on the covered bridge
And watched his ashes float away.

What a bittersweet vacation
Stepping back into the past.
Reliving the beginnings of.....
A life that didn't last.
