lessons taught in an ole country fire
boys will be forever in ya debt
will ya remember the stars at night
when ya hunt down enemies liar?

took just a bullet to kill a child
a brother of mine and yesterdays son
do ya search for absolute calm?
were ya hunting for death inside?

gambles make a worthy man rich
and highways lead to ones soul
"n" when he lie coughing up blood
EMT retrieves him from ya ditch

pink hearts spill out on a Valentines
needles in his arm never mocked
only person he cared for left his side
footsteps traced empty bottles wines

hey, brother..your gift to God is ya smile
and if i look up to the heavens i see now
the wonders ya told me so much about
I'm thinkin I may linger on "n" stay awhile

if i lie down it's because i'm kinda numb
heatherns like me walk in afternoon sun
dont mind the taste left in my mouth
it's only the passion of death i've succumb

but, big brother, where are ya now?
I'd hold your hand if ya were near
whispers of no disgrace ring in my head
thinkin I shoulda known God anyhow

and when ya look upon the stars, do we?
yeah boy, it's our ole lessons taught
michael, he prayed for you in his moment
my dear Shawn, yes up there is you "n" me.....


whew.....glad that is written........I'll see ya Shawn..

never cared for the rating game....Shawn was my brother "n" was shot....he died pleading that I always write..and wondered why ......said, "good God I dont wanna die"?
dont know how else to pay tribute to a lost soul but, to write his last days....I dont condone drug use....was just a part of his life.......and that which killed his body..
