Gentle Breeze (For Glen Campbell, (1936-2017)

Darkness of His Dreams


Counting the dirty cracks in the sidewalk,
Listening to a great old song,
Echoing through my ears,
Whispered on a warm summer breeze
From a southern night, long ago.

Memory’s door is always open,
The path is free to tread:
A little boy singing with the radio,
Rhinestone dreams shared across the miles.

Bedrolls and sleeping bags,
Traveling down the line,
Spotlights and fan mail;
That subway token still inside my shoe.

The caress of your voice still lingers,
Transporting me across the miles,
Through the years,
And keeps you, forever, gentle on my mind.

      Fabulous! Thank you so much for sharing. I saw him in his final concert at Chastain Park Amphitheatre (Atlanta) in July 2012. He was amazing.
