The Last Party

 

an instant reminder

separate the finer

conjure up a history

that is only time

prior to the podium

one of a way

nothing but the truth

we'll do just fine

 

the bluebirds alighted upon the tinsel tree

your mailbox was empty

you painted it gold leaf

silver bows deflected

what made the nighttime shine

your apparition

for the very last time

 

it was the last party

it would be the very last time

I saw you so happy

I saw you fly

 

an instant reminder

separate the finer

summarize a history

that was your time

an exhibition of your painted past

reticence doesn't...doesn't always last

reticence doesn't...doesn't always last

 

it was the last party

(once...you live like this)

it would be the very last time

(once...you loved)

I saw you so happy

(once...you lived like this)

I saw you fly

(once...you love)
