A Tribute To Hal Ketchum

Hal, I used to love the way you’d write

The stories that your lyrics told

are still running through my mind

Man, it just doesn’t seem right

That at sixty seven

you’ve already left this world behind

Rest in peace, my poet brother

I’ll catch you on the other side

Amazing

Dusk falling down fast on the town of Big Spring

They’re freeing themselves of everything

That’s been holding them back from spreading

their wings,

They’re making a clean getaway

He’s got her heart,it makes him want to sing

& she’s got his & she’s wearing his ring

They’re both looking forward to

what their joint future will bring

Sure that it will be amazing

Courage & Strength

I heard a song today that shook me to my heart & soul

The singer was a man dealing w/loss

though I could sense his heart break

& it seemed like more than he could take

He still held tightly to his faith,

I’ve got to say, I could totally relate

It stuns, when a song hits you

in a deeply personal way

I’m glad he had the courage & strength

Even in the midst of his pain

To put the song’s words to the page

I sincerely think that through it

Lives will be changed
