Dedicated to Jenn – Jennspoint

(Written to Joe Cocker, Bye Bye Blackbird)



Night of soul

your moon and stars are dim

who is going to find me

in this dark I’m sitting in


trying to see over wings

that tuck me in at night

it’s time now, time to go

from this cover to the light


going to find my way

even if blind and stumbling through

at least I know there’s something

that I’m meant to do


there will be another

maybe quite a few

on this travel somewhere

leaving darkness too


we’ll wander through the shadows

our hearts will make a fire

and hear the lesson mother blackbird sings

for our wings to take us higher
