…for Jeff (Wolf River Harbor)

I’ll never sing a song again,
The way that I sang you~
To caress the rise of an old refrain
And awake the boy I knew

…And I’ll never sing a song again
The way that I sang you.

I won’t ever kiss a boy again,
The way that I kissed you
Or roam the back way, darkened roads
To meet for a precious few

…Because I’ll never want a boy the way
That I’ve wept for wanting you.

And should I never write a Eulogy or hum your pretty tune
For a boy I sang, and loved and lost
A boy I lost too soon~
And me, the girl you thought you knew, gone to the river too~

….to hum you over and over,
stones across water
How I grieve at singing you.
