Poems for Bill

Song for Bill’s Birthday 2007     by Joe Bickford

Whether you’re at work or play
you find guidance from the moon,
your values are on full display

That’s a way of life
that gives you that feeling,
that feeling of self worth

I can tell the season
by the length of your hair
and the harvest
that you have to share

That’s a way of life
that gives you that feeling,
that feeling of self worth

Your skin is dark
from being in the sun,
your hands are hard
from working the earth

That’s a way of life
that gives you that feeling,
that feeling of self worth

You write for hours
on those cold winter days
because your soul
has so much to say

That’s a way of life
that gives you that feeling,
that feeling of self worth

    my sweet bill,
    like a cactus
    one way get him pissed
    is give him something
    you think he needs.

    Time it carefully
    when you say
    I love you
    cause, it might not
    be the day.

    he found his own
    feeding himself
    with his bare hands
    how organic is that?

    When you wonder
    can life be something
    else, think how
    Bill did it.
    Seeing a path,
    then following.
