    Once Upon A Time

     

    Mister Smith taught me:

    Play with your words; let them sing -

    Just don't let them go.

     

    So I guess I won't. 

    Even when I don't know what

    The melody is.

     

    But I know the song,

    Because he sang it to me

    With his deepest breath.

     

    Somehow, the notes meshed ...

    Friday's orchestra of one

    Heard by everything. 

     

    I dared sing along

    Because he invited me

    No punctuation

     

    When I think of him,

    I'm led to thoughts of others

    Who, like me, loved him.

     

    Once upon a time.

    Hmm.  Yeah, I needed that.
