American Pie

“I often think about the times
you make me feel so grand
Hearing your strong vocal chimes
ring out across the land

To remind those that you love
their lives should be uplifted
That each day in our loving hearts
we make room for the gifted

Unselfish, caring, loving tolls
they come from your direction
And pull me closer to my goals
utmost, a lasting resurrection

You should know in my heart
I pray your rings are ingrained
On your good words when we part
I trust my thoughts are trained”
