Desperately Seeking John

talented fingers

strumming along

cords and words

plucking at the listener's

heart and soul

enchanting voice

flowing through

the mischief

of his smile

the pain in his eyes

unmatched

by the strength

later found in his being

inspiration and enlightenment

given

by his unending spirit

constantly clinging

to his message

of love and peace

and now

twenty-two years past

still

desperately seeking John

Happy Birthday John!

I luv you and miss you!

Shine On!
