Jan Hauck (June 1,1978)
You were a living dead for many years
Before your body and mind gave up,
I try to bring you back to life,
Lady Lazarus, the way you used to live.
I try to know you, care and learn,
Your words, your pain, your struggles,
Your life and death a living water,
I need you, the way you used to live.
Amazing intensity to write through you,
Your pain my pain, your struggles for me,
My need to create from your life,
To die the way you used to live.
