Pineless Paean

Fell in love with used-to-be?
Head over heels for the fancy free?
Pedestal up on high
meanwhile thine days go by?

Part was key. Part was dream.
Part returns. Part unseen.
Part can ease. Part can bind.
Pine don’t please. Please don’t pine.

Fell in love with my memory.
Band sounded better in ’93.
But grew a legend in between –
slower now, that mirage speed.

Part was key. Part was dream.
Part returns. Part unseen.
Part can ease. Part can bind.
Pine don’t please. Please don’t pine.

Realm of no-limit space is the place
where yesterday and tomorrow stay
out of the way, yet still in sight
with today’s world’s the stage….and lights!

….and lights!
….and lights!
….and lights!

Look around. Let it last.
Let it come. Let it pass.

Take no photographs.
Give what you’ve got left.

Part was key. Part was dream.
Part returns. Part unseen.
Part can ease. Part can bind.
Pine don’t please. Please don’t pine.
