About Bob - Poem by RIC BASTASA

when you stole father's house
we did not mind
nothing will be lost
you just took your ride
gallop in the air
and then when the excitement
was over
you returned it somehow
without questions
we accepted the
self that you are

now you are the summit of your
perhaps that ride of the horse
gave you that feeling
that you are bound for the
greatness in
the clouds where you now

we never regret
you thief
you stole the dreams
and lived it

that horse died
dreams don't
