By Mychael John Thomas

From the time I heard your ringing bass my life was not the same
I never met you face to face…You didn’t know my name
But with every loving note you played I felt a kinship grow
Comrades in a cosmic world that few will ever know

Put the needle on the record…Your magestic voice would soar
Enthralled with every story...We always begged for more
The experience was sacred in the world you chose to give
And when we shared the love and joy…It seemed easier to live

Now it seems that all our heroes are falling in the war
Those troubadours of progress who led us searching for
A pure and higher consciousness…A purpose for us all
And a little part of each of us goes…When heroes fall

In the heat of your moment…Found our passions realized
The love of youth remembered…We saw with different eyes
We may meet in our forever when the rainbow bridge we cross
We'll never cry those lonely tears or feel the pain of loss
