    In spaces familiar

    Our ancestors dwell

    Surreal you can feel

    Amidst trouble they've come

    Same songs we've always sung

    An other worldly dream unfolds

    Guiding light nearer to thee

    Opening eyes to reality

    Conveying truth and love

    Done with worldliness

    Hapless slaps your wrists

    Whispers gentleness

    Alive and well

    Devoid of time

    On time...

    where life resides

    At the ready at the quick

    Led all leagues in assists ~

    Thru the night and in our sun

    Never again are we alone

    Living for a dying day

    See them here

    Around the way
