Anniversary poem

Missing Spalding
His "Swimming to Cambodia"
Those monologues we knew
Such talent in one single man
So much, yet still so blue
Six years ago, his mind made up
Our Spalding went away
This world was just too much for him
He knew he couldn't stay
With scrambled thoughts, alone he went
To find his peace of mind
He's found that peace, though sad we are
For us he left behind
Some people still don't understand
Unclear inside their brain
But we who do must learn from him
Must come in from the rain....
We miss you, Spalding.
Always, Barb
