( 1943 ~ 2015 )


forever it seems

we hear about

the whims of fame and fortune

their easy come their easy go

the hard lesson

everything we have

is a gift

we haven't earned a thing

just wait and they

will desert us

not if but when


Thomas Meyer

no doubt

to think about stuff

but who

in this world

can take apart

the wind
