For Her’s

Their guitars stand somewhere in an empty room on American soil
Dust spots in the sun settle on their strings
You held hopes for us all

For those of us who still hold onto those big old romantic dreams
or believe that there are some things still worth trying to say
Something that might help
You did
And you did it with joy
