Heaven and Earth

Like voices talking back
Out of a photograph
You softly whisper to me
As if the close up said,
“Wake up you sleepy head
It’s time to riddle the game”

And the years slipped by like you hand from mine
As the memories spill free from the frame

Heaven and earth can’t bridge the annointed
True but it hurts, you are alive in me
Heaven and earth can’t garner the ashes
We scattered and gave to the sea
Sweet Dorothy

Wish I could tell you now
About my ups and downs
About my babe yet to be
About the picket fence
Or least of all the dress
The dance, the songs left in me

And the sea gull drinks from your body
And delivers your song to my door

Heaven and earth can’t bridge the annointed
True but it hurts, you are alive in me
Heaven and earth can’t garner the ashes
We scattered and gave to the sea
Sweet dorothy

How can one stolen moment, untouched by time
Bring back the brush of your hand
And after all these summers
I miss you more than I planned
My sweet Dorothy
