Ben - -

- - my darling boy


Remember me in sunlight, remember me in rain
Remember me with laughter - please forget the pain,
For though I am not with you – please think of me with joy
A blue eyed mischief maker – a smiling happy boy.
Think BMX, and skateboards, Heavy metal and head gear
Remember those beach parties, and Jonny’s basement beer.
Remember me with kindness, remember how to smile
Remember though I’ve gone away, for a little while,
I might be watching Countdown, or maybe, Babylon 5
Or maybe I’m crowd surfing with Black Orchid playing “live”,
Remember Raging Speedhorn , festivals or “dirty south”
Remember that I’ll be there – from those days of our youth,
Think Star Trek, well, how could you not? Or System of a Down
So smile when you remember me – from when I played the clown.
