it was hot as the sun beat down on the ceremony. the black casket covered in white roses. i could hear the crys of the guests as the ceremony began. i brought with me a red rose, my words written for you along the petals. i layed it across where your chest remained still. the petals may wilt and fade away but my words to you my brother will forever remain. i walked away knowing that your body was at rest and that your soul was now free. i stopped and looked back as they lowered your casket into the ground. my heart felt at ease knowing the cruelty of this world could no longer harm you. we will meet again, my friend. never a forever goodbye.
jet lagged, exhausted and emotionally drained, here i sit in another hotel room. no view, no balcony, just the moldy smell of previous tenants and stiff sheets. i could honestly use a california sunset right now...
soon i will be back on the bus, back on the road, a familiarity i have found comfort in. no longer alone, surrounded by friends - a couple crazy guys, one quiet one, an ex-lover and a woman who helps me to keep my sanity.
i am looking forward to the unavoidable smith hello hump.
as for now, i bid you all goodnight. rest well. sweet dreams.
