I wanted to build you the greatest theatre of all,
where your voice would reach into everyone’s soul,
where your movements, so graceful,
and your talent,
would shine like the sun in the east.
I am the motivation,
you are the reason.
I paved the road walked.
You own the feathers that provide the lift
in the wings of lonely birds,
that fly without ever questioning where or why
things happen or things don’t.
And I’m the smoke that rises
from the cigarette that you discarded.
And the theatre that I had dreamed for you
I built for someone else.
And up there in the highest cloud,
in the most glorious place that I could find
above the sea, up in the sky,
is where I’ll leave you to decide your future.
In the stage that I created,
a new voice has now stated
that in the clouds she’s heard
