Requiem for John Martyn

Small hours
just a few small hours
Life is slipping away
like a guitar chord
Your songs are praying
for more time John
but death don’t have no mercy
the great composer of all
is playing your final tune
like he once did
when he called
your soulbrother Nick
but your voice will
always sound
like solid air
between heaven and earth
May you ever
fill our hearts
May you never
leave our minds
