Dan Fogelberg’s Last Wishes



Going 'As the Raven Flies' is 'The Long Way'

To see my 'Forefathers' 'Bones In The Sky'

I’m not 'Telling You Stories' but 'It’s Hard To Say'

When they drive 'The Last Nail', how much 'Longer' ‘til I die?

 

If it’s 'Part Of The Plan' please 'Tell Me To My Face'

'All There Is' 'Along The Road' are 'Empty Cages' and 'Ghosts'

Just 'Give Me Some Time'...is the 'Nether Lands' my place?

If not, it is the 'Stars', 'The Morning Sky' I love the most

        Thanks Dan- not really much to the poem. Purpose was to put the names of his songs in the lines of the poem. It worked out ok.
