lyrics

REMEMBRANCE
(c) Ju Honisch

There's grey sky above me like a tupper ware bowl
that someone from outside the heavens put o'er
to limit our vision, to curtail our range,
we think it's the weather - but isn't it strange?
I sit at my desk and my work's oddly trite,
I stare at the grey day and long for the night,
a rite of forever the same things's my day,
it pays for my life and my hopes - so I stay.

And yellowing photographs warp through my mind
of friends that have faded and have stayed behind,
in the refuge of memory they built their nest,
I remember the good things and forget all the rest.
I seek sanctuary from the troubles of time
in the visions that stayed with me faithful, sublime,
for I know should they die then the world would turn cold,
I would shrivel inside, would grow brittle and old.

And I grab at your laughter and hold fast at your smiles
and hoist anchor and sail on my memories a while,
and kindness and love is the breeze in my sail
that carries me on through fair weather and gale.
For friends turn the storm into wind in your back
and love makes you whole even though you might lack
a good many features perfection demands,
thus you sing through your foibles, on your shortcomings dance.
