Rookie - 138 Points (Motown)

Alaska


He lives near the mountains of cold
says that heat makes him melt
left a Michigan hometown
far north to become someone else
for years his stories sustained me
an occasional picture
made believe I was there
so close to the northern lights
during a phone call we'd share
he always wanted a cabin
with nature on every side
a place for a garden
hand built with the love of his life
now he's been my best friend
probably the best friend I've ever had
leaned on him in sorrows
but now my leaning just makes him sad
old Russia bought for cheap
running to came at a great price
a decade of regret later
not for the journey
but refusing to fight
I've been all I can ever be to him
the brother of my first love
so when you're there if you see him
tell him I'm sorry but Alaska
will have to be enough

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
