TO THE LATE JIM HENSON
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To love the man I never knew--
Most painful thing I've ever done.
Now your life on Earth is through,
My love for you has just begun.

The fond affection felt before
Was a subconscious kind of love.
My love for Kermit (the god of arms)
Forgot whose arm enlivened the amphibian glove.

Your alter ego was green.
Your alter ego was Kermit's life.
For all your friends who held you close,
My envy green does hold you tight!

But I find I hold a nothingness,
An empty space you used to fill.
I miss the man I never knew,
And I suppose I always will.

ALL IS NOT LOST
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All is not lost.
I hold you in my arms,
A remnant of your former self,
Yet still the one I cling to.

All is not lost.
You mean more to me than gold.
Even though your soul is cold,
I'm here for you always.

All is not lost.
Friends don't go away.
Even half-a-world away,
We share each other in our hearts.

Lost and found,
To love we are bound.
You're the reason my heart beats.
In silent retreats,
My mind wanders through my memory
To hug you tight.

I sing our song
And know it won't be long
Till we embrace
Face to face.
