Written in my dining room on a nice fall day while trickles of the neighbors' wind chimes and hints of smoke from the burning leaves danced through my windowpanes. This coming the morning after my friend Nancy passed away. I considered the sensory gifts as her way of saying hello from beyond. This song is me saying hello back.


Waving goodbye, she sings
Listens to the dings
Of the silver rings
The air, the air, brings

Waving goodbye, she sings
Smells the burning
Of the leaves
The trees, the trees, brings

Waving goodbye, she sings
Just let them,
Let them be
Some rest, some rest and some peace

We'll see you again
Or maybe not
All that we got
Is dirt and sand

Return my friend
To that well again
Cry all you can
And then your gone
Then your gone
Gone, gone, gone
Gone, gone, gone
Gone, gone, gone
