Letters To Lost Loves
by Tyson Motsenbocker


Said Iíd walk to San Francisco
After everything was done
Thought the noise and moving busy
Kept my mind from really knowing what was gone
And when I finally saw it closing
all those miles across the bay
I was only standing closer to
The man I hoped to lose along the way

But If Iím being honest
But If Iím being honest
I would tell them

Itís a children's book
Itís a hospital gown
Itís an aspen tree in the summer breeze
She saw, as waving hands
Itís a watching chair
and a holy company
Like a sailing ship
Hard wrought in it
That will never again float upon the sea

I found that thereís a humor
In an old and fond goodbye
As if the early passing was a door
that she could look through with a smile

So If Iím being honest
If Iím being honest
I would tell her

Itís a pair of jeans
Itís a rude awakening
Itís a fine life lived in the privilege of standing there in the afterlight
Itís a photograph
Folded in my wallet
To remind myself that what she left
Is only growing bigger over time
