Why are you Crying Heather Brown

Why are you crying Heather Brown?
Is it for the empty cradle,
that you are rocking every night,
Is it for the sad and lonely clown,
whose face was always white?

Or is it for your hero
that died in the picture show?
Are your tears for the singing cowboy
from the one horse rodeo?

Are there colors to your rainbow?
Or is your world a pale grey?
Are you weeping because your tomorrows
will be the same as yesterday?

Why are you crying Heather Brown?
Is it because you miss the music
the band was playing
when you were in town?

Is it in memory of the dances,
of the boy who held you tight?
Or is it for the lonely clown
whose face is always white?

Do you weep for the soldier’s picture
whose face is stained with your tears?
Is it perhaps for the lock of brown hair
you kept safe for so many years?

When you peer into the mirror
do you see the face of the clown?
When you close your red-rimmed eyes
can you see the face of your hero
just before he died?

Do you still miss the singing cowboy
from the one horse rodeo?
Can you still hear the music
they always play in town?
Can you tell me why
you are crying, Heather Brown?

  • Keeper of the Sword

    It is often a simple thing, the roll of the dice, the turn of a card, or a chance meeting that can change one’s life forever. For Josh Campbell, and Morgan Connelly it was a seemingly harmless chain of events, a fight after school and performing a ritual that neither one of them believed in.

    Full of fear and excitement Keeper of the Sword (The Sword of Kings) Josh notched an arrow to the bow string, pulled it back to his ear, took careful aim and released the shaft of death, and before it reached its target, a second bolt sliced through the dark. (To find out more, just follow the link.)
