Hello Divine

For my friend Sam Barkin.

We say aho, we sing ase.
Wish for you upon your way
the healing you found hard to find.
Goodbye this earth, hello divine.

Can’t wait for another sweat.
When you think I’ll see you next?
Looks like you postponed our date.
Love you, Sam. It’s hard to wait.

We say aho, we sing ase.
Wish for you upon your way
the healing you found hard to find.
Goodbye this earth, hello divine.

Through my shut and sobbing eyes
I hear your chants and see that smile.
Stories that you shared with me
have roots inside, will never leave.

We say aho, we sing ase.
Wish for you upon your way
the healing you found hard to find.
Goodbye this earth, hello divine.

I’ll keep looking up to you,
think to myself, “what would Sam do?”.
Weren’t all that long in the tooth
but sure were long on simple truths.

We say aho, we sing ase.
Wish for you upon your way
the healing you found hard to find.
Goodbye this earth, hello divine.
