lyrics

VWOOLF
by Jennifer Thiessen

Let the ink flow from my pen and bleed onto the page,
the way yours must have done when you wrote your final phrase
to the one you loved – your grandest irony:
“No one could have been happier than we have been.”

Steady hand on the railing, you stop at the top of the stairs.
Hollow eyes in the mirror, the years are wearing thin.

May I never follow you to the river, where the waves held you under.

Let my finger trace the line I drew along your trail
to places that you loved, addresses with tales to tell.
I'm haunted by your words, your ghost is right behind;
every time I turn, the poet's spirit comes to life.

Did you stop on the corner and see the clouds rolling in?
Were the lines still forming when everything grew dim?

May I never follow you to the river, where the waves held you under.
May I be the living proof that the poet lives on through the work that we do.

The surface of your world is all that I can see,
but with your words in mind, the truth lies rippling underneath.
The echo of your voice rings from your shallow grave.
You looked death in the eye and everything else washed away.

When you stood in that room of your own and struggled to say
what you knew, did you see how your words would lighten the weight?

May I never follow you to the river, where the waves held you under.
May I be the living proof that the poet lives on through the work that we do.
