Taming This Tyke's Voice Since 2007

Klieg Lights

~

When the show is over

And the crowd is gone.

After the applause has faded

And alone you stand.

Remember that I will be backstage ~

Waiting.

After the blinding

Kleig lights

Are gone.

~

“You are life to me.

And now that you are gone,

I will wait until you’re home. . . . . 

                      . . . . . So I may live again.” ~ Jeques

    This is very moving. I especially like the stage allusion.

    Kevin,

    You brought me joy visiting and leaving a comment in this piece.
    It is sad to loss somebody to the klieg lights, it is blinding ~ imagined and for real. I lost a friend once, and never returned.

    Thank you very much, Kevin.

    I wish you well.

    ~ Jeques
