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…
