Purple Hearts - Poem by Bunny Crunch

I lay out here, gaze at the stars
With paint and skates, and chocolate bars
The softness of the island sand
Unmatchable throughout this land

Through turmoil, terror, hate and blame
I know that I'll still be the same
For I have learned from you this far
The bitter value of a scar

I won't return to you again
Now far beyond the reach of men
Though I'll never learn to fly
If you first never make me cry

After what you've done to me
I hope that all the world will see
That life is more than words and charts
But love and fear, and purple hearts

It is they that show us how to live
Love to me, you would never give
It is that love that hurt me first
But from it I will not be cursed

And now we're here, up in the air
On top of Earth without a care
We'll soar above and not be shy
Flying up above the sky

Now that I've learned to tell a lie
No one will ever have to die
Through work of yours
Or others scores

I never thought I'd save a life
With gentle words and fun nightlife
Just a hug and a gentle smile
Can take away those words of vile

This world once, he longed to leave
But ran to me, I couldn't believe
What I could do with just four words
And now we've been frequent shorebirds

Alone again, alone with me
I gave him more than can ever be
A miracle, at very least
His happiness is long released

I've made his life, I've done much more
Time again to hit the shore
Each of these sweet Memphis days
We will race some blue stingrays

The softness of the island sand
Unmatchable throughout this land
Purple hearts shine in the sky
From pain that we have long gone by
