Lyrics
BRAVE KITE

I sent up your picture
On a brave kite,
I held your hand as you
Flew to the light.

A lock of your hair
I sent on a balloon,
To the clouds madly
Fleeing the moon.

I threw up your ashes
Into the wind.
It gusted in honor
Of what they'd once been.

I whiffed your scent hiding
In a soft breeze,
Laying in ambush
Behind the trees.

I sent up your name
To live with the stars,
Riding a rocket--
Its honor guard.
