Wonderwall79 has left the building

 

 
See you when I see you 
 
In a lost prairie there's an old ghost I have to chase 
A promise I made to a friend a challenge I have to face
I always knew this day was gonna come
Where my back would be against the setting sun
 
The last bandit I have to hunt down
Who lately has been hanging around
At Friday's end I will be gone
Just not entirely sure for how long
 
With the friends I've made I'll be indebted forever
Forgetting about you is something I will never
With many different personalities in this thoughts saloon
I'd buy you all a round, tip my hat and
Leave at high noon 
 
The outlaw has one last adventure down an old familiar road
A promise I have to keep its sewn into my outlaw code
With that said this will be my very last post
It's time I took to the road to chase an old ghost
 
Thank you for allowing me to express my feelings
To spread a little joy as I worked on my old dealings 
You'll never know just what it truly meant 
To allow me to share my thoughts and let me vent
 
I enjoyed my stay at the thoughts hotel 
Im glad I met some of the amazing clientele 
However for now I will have to check out 
I hope to get back from my lost whereabouts 
 
To all those who became invaluable and called me a friend
I sincerely thank you for all your advice you tried to lend 
I'd personally like to thank all those who friended me
I can't express how much that meant to me
 
You humbled me and took me in as one of your own
In a place I will fondly look back as my second home
There are those who I'll truly never forget
Indebted an empowered to have ever met
 
I want to thank all those whoever commented, liked and read
All those ditties and jokes inside my little clown head
You have all shared your thoughts somehow someway
Truth be told I'll never be able to fully ever repay
 
You gave me more than I could have ever asked for
You enriched my life I couldn't ask for anything more
But it's time I packed up my circus tent and gags 
Put back on my outlaw uniform and saddle bags
 
Load my six shooters and trusty shot gun
Mount my stead and gallop into the setting sun 
I tip my hat in total respect to one and all
As I kick up the dust hearing the prairie and its call
 
My gypsie soul is calling to be freed
Blowing like a desert tumbleweed 
Goodbye for now until I stumble back into this town
I shake your hand and say " l'll see you around"
 
So take care out there wherever your travels may take you
I guess the last thing to say is I'll see you when I do

    Ah… and so thus let it be told
    The ways of that ol’ dusty road
    Now rides off into a distant horizon and setting sun
    A kind jester and a true poet if ever there was one
    A lone cowpoke upon his loyal steed
    A drifter of a rare and special creed
    A good ol’ soul of thought and deed
    ~ ~ ~ ~
    Farewell for now wonderwall.
    You’ll be truly missed by us all.
    Yours in spirit always, Black Bird.

      AGGH me old friend I stand and applaud your words.
      Indeed I was lucky to roam these dusty trails
      And find such a feathered friend as yourself.
      It was the company I kept that enriched this ole cowpoke with a warmth like finding a golden nugget.
      Take care black bird I will no doubt find my way back into this dusty thoughts saloon again, it was an absolute pleasure my friend in meeting your aquaintence you’ll have a place in my posse til the end of days
      I tip my brim in respect and slowly Trott out of town

    Oh wonderwall, I haven’t been here much lately myself, but I have to say that you are one of the ones I have truly enjoyed – and that means every aspect of you! I have never seen you utter an unkind word to anyone here, and your poems and posts have always been very special. I wish you the best of everything because you are the real deal. I do hope are paths will cross again, my friend. xxxooo!! and one for the road!!
