Jeremy Lee - at an 
G
ice-creamery on the 
F
evening of 
G
October 
C
10 —
  
lost 
F
55 
G
dollars and 
C
70 cents,
  
was shot 
F
twice in the 
G
chest and 
C
again in the head.
  
The po
F
lice found him 
G
dead by the 
C
walk-in.
  
But he’d 
F
loved God so 
G
much, as he 
C
lay in
G
side his 
Am
bed,
  
he could 
F
feel Her sweep 
G
over his 
C
skin.
He could feel Her filling the air with the weight of Her care,
and didn’t care what was waiting for him:
  
How he’d 
F
cry, cry so 
G
much, knowing
C
 that this 
G
was the
F
 end,
  
and then 
F
feel like a 
G
leaf 
C
lif
G
ted by 
F
wind.
How I’d love him so much that I almost cave in
every time my hand touches the pen.
So lower your cameras and switch off the spot.
You shouldn’t be proud of the footage you got,
because there won’t be an end to the similar shots
that have happened, are happening,
and can’t be prevented from endlessly happening again.
For all your pride and your comfort and speed of ascent,
you’re heading too soon to a similar end —
only coughing up blood in a hospital bed
as your heart-attack, cancer or car accident
breaks you down to a place in the ground
  
for your 
G
kids to come 
C
visit.
And if God loves us back, we should know, out and in,
that She must have no control over this world’s events,
because no one deserves this much punishment.
But now it`s late in the autumn and leaves line the bend.
It’s a beautiful day for the first snow to land,
so it’s landing on me and on Jeremy Lee,
who left this world gracefully, broken.
