Fare Thee Well
There's a longing in my soul that drives me ever on
A thirst deep in my being for the place where I belong
And I have traveled many paths to end up here alone.
I found you once when I was young when life was brave and new
I lost you then but found again the place reserved for you
For I have traveled many paths which all lead back to you.
You gave yourself so freely once yet I held back reserve
And suffer now the pain of loss which I so much deserve
And travel now the one lone path from which I can not swerve.
Oh Ed, my friend, beloved friend if on your travels you
Find yourself alone and lost-rest knowing I love you
And though we trek two different paths I always will love you.
