DO YOU KNOW...?
To Kenny Loggins (from the lady who did your portraits)...... That I've explored every inch of your face with all my senses and felt your soul?
... That I've caressed your cheeks with the softest,
most gentle touch I've ever/never known...
(yet I know you felt nothing!)
... That I've dealt with your eyes
'til my own refused to see
(and know your face ...and what
hairs are out of place).
and DO YOU KNOW ~
... That I've listened to you when
... That you'll never, never know me
|... That there are those who'll never
get as close to me as you have ~
Because you ask nothing but for me to "listen" to your song.
... That it feels so safe loving you ~ like loving God
(A friend in times of good and bad).
We never appreciate the truly fine things we've had...
'til we stop our tears and hurt,
bein' glad we're still here.
... That I see the boy in you
-- and the man you're yet to be...
(Don't blame me for being able to see.)
I hear the voice you use to send your thoughts to me,
smell the roses ... and hear the violins...
As I listen (and paint),
I taste the sweet, ripe, young
BUT, in a crystal, vintage glass.
HOW DO I REALLY FEEL?
Please, please don't ask!
The above sketch was done by my beautiful daughter, Shawn, in 1983 ~ and who first introduced me to the music of this multi-talented singer, songwriter, musician. Thank you for sharing, Shawn.
I would also like to thank Kenny Loggins for the autographing of two of my paintings of him and, of course, for his beautiful music!
