remember me

Diamonds on Blue Velvet

remember me

You wonderful ones who have wondered with me
In your youth about truth and what that might be
Who have understood me better than I could
Having grown up with me and my poetry
Remember me now as you venture and go
To all of the places I never have been
As I adventure in the spaces in the in between

And if peradventure you know what I mean
Think of me now and again when you see
A ring around the moon in the blue velvet sky
Wearing stars like diamonds to remember us by
To wonder about wonders beyond what we know
And when you see this to receive a kiss
Around the corner of the universe from me

You know about stars from my poems before
Who know what I mean and who know that I know
That you know that I mean that none of us go
That is when we go then we go like a ring
Around the moon or like the wheel of everything
Turning but returning no matter how far
Around the corner of the universe to be

Spangling we spill across blue velvet and call
To one another each to each the star
We are and know we are because of these on this
Our history across the sky no mystery to see
Like diamonds on blue velvet we flash until we fall
To rise again within the memory
Of you wonderful ones who have wondered with me

A star though having fallen now rising after all
Remembered is thought of all over again
A flash and we are in the sky once more
Remaining to depart and arriving to remain
Like all of us always again and again
Like stars though having fallen now rising after all
Like diamonds on blue velvet we flash until we fall
