The Death of Tim Lewis
by Tim Lewis

Fanatically happy
he died like he lived
fully soul realized
’til nothing was left

The club was dark
beyond day or night
the music was loud
the band oh so tight

Pounding drums
and surging bass
caressed by singers
sweet embrace
Keys so filling
keys so strong
they together
built this song

Guitars of glory
guitars of power
Tim rode the notes
hour by hour

Follow along, follow the song
follow along, follow the song

His shoulders looked for the rhythm
his feet found the beat
his ears searched for changes
his fingers tapped his drink

His soul followed along, his heart loved the song
his soul followed along, his heart loved the song

He went to the show
night after night
no more than three venues
in one single night

And on that day
or was it night
his beautiful soul
shone a little too bright

It glowed more and more
’til he could no longer contain it
light left the body
leaving an empty container

EMT’s moved his body
a brave try to save it
but nothing could help
this empty container

And the band soldiered on
and a light lit the room
making friends wonder
if they could really feel gloom

The band ripped it up
enchanting the room
until the last note
when the light left the room

The sadness was brief
in the annals of time
since something odd happened
in a short span of time

The next time his favorite
band took the stage
a bright little light
appeared out of the way

It glowed and it pulsed
though could barely be seen
it blinked with the notes
both played and in between

It shone a bit brighter
when the music was great
then showed up more often
and always stayed late

Bands could tell by the way
the light flickered and bopped
that Tim’s body was gone
but his soul was not stopped

In many a club
year after year
when rockers would rock
Tim would appear

And so it is now
and so it was then
if you take to the stage
you’ll always have a friend
in Burlington
