I listened to David play Red Haired Boy
picking guitar of timeless mountain light
while driving somewhere on numberless road
going away or heading onward home
I forgot and lost my way without care
thinking about my Texas-town best friend,
hot summer afternoon at fishing hole,
who gassed himself in his truck, eighty-six,
I never learned till twenty three years later,
then stood two hours on lonely sun-fired hill
somewhere between Seattle and Miami,
and arranged small red rocks on dusty slope
to spell his full name, David Daniel Smith,
and I wished we could ride our bikes again
on christian college campus, drink root beer,
and climb brick wall outside library hall,
and write about adventures in spy books.

He must have been a very good friend I am sorry he was gone too soon...
We had a good time. I moved to Seattle and lost touch so I never knew until two years ago.
Listening and remember those I've lost before their time... thank you.
Add my sympathies to all of the others. So sad.
