love on

from dog years by Teddy Quinn



i realized it was important to bow out gracefully. i wrote this to commemorate ten days of silence. i went to the grounds of the place where she was meditating to help my friend art kunkin move his library of books. i wondered what i would do if i saw her and we weren't supposed to speak. she would have had to just look away.


if i am able i will enable you to do the things
you want to do
if i am able i will enable you to do the things
you've got to do
love on love on love on love on
i'll sacrifice my pride take it in my stride
take you for a ride where you want to go
i will not be your judge or help you
hold a grudge but
i'll give you a nudge when it's time to go
love on love on love on love on
and when i need your help and i can't help
myself you can help yourself to what is mine
and when you think you can't i'll put it in your hands
and give it one more chance to shine
love on love on love on love on
