This Empty Guitar

A black Stetson waits in your chair
Dust now follows sunbeams in the air

Life's lessons remain in this place
Death's reach can't erase your face

Smoke rings and laughter linger here
Ghostly melodies drift where they dare

Distant guitar strings echo and cry
Trapped, untouched now...where they lie

A bird's song gets lost in the breeze
Love's magic...fades in dreams

Songs we sang before, haven't changed
Souls however, seem re-arranged

Oh, won't you please join me again
Let your wondrous music begin

This empty guitar and silence...an odd pair
A black Stetson waits in your chair
