My Crazy Diamond

Another song/poem. I wrote, and my sons friend and I recorded, its a bit rough cause it was recorded on his phone, but the words are mine.


My Crazy Diamond


As these words cascade upon the page

Sometimes I shine like you

All my friends say its good to have you back

I’ll spend another day

Just staring at th...

Blues for David.
