Someone's Missing

Kristin Lems
words and music by Kristin Lems c 2005 Kleine Ding Music (BMI)


dedicated to all the artists lost to AIDS...and their loved ones, fans, and families.


Someone's missing from the chorus line Someone's missing from the stage There's a silence in the orchestra Someone's gone from the ballet Lovely hands and lovely visions Full of life and full of grace Some departed with a gift that cannot be erased. Tell me, where have all the young men gone? Men who hardly saw their prime? Men who lit up performances Seen for a final time Too soon the heavy curtain fell Interrupted the sublime Death, are you so very jealous of their artful rhyme? Gone, yes, but not forgotten These tender artists of the wind. Part of a world of magic Not soon to come again. Farewell, we shall remember Our inspirations and our friends Even though you're gone, your life, like art, will never end.
