Oh Captain, Our Captain

The Expressible Café

Robin_Williams-Esquire

The darkness it was silent

No brightness filled the room

Until a Tiny Glimmer

Raised up its face from gloom.

 

It sparked and then it fired up

A flash of light it made

Until that Tiny Glimmer

Blew out the grimmest shade.

 

A laugh was heard from far away

A chuckle too was lit

And then that Tiny Glimmer

It had a firey fit.

 

The fire ignited everywhere

But nothing felt a burn

Because that Tiny Glimmer

Was gentle at each turn.

 

The laughter it continued

Respect and love was shared

That Tiny Glimmer was no more

A flame instead it bared.

 

And everyone sat in It’s glow

The warmth of funny tears

That Flame threw open solid doors

Annihilated fears.

 

The joy, the crazy, all at once

Side-splitting cheerful glee

That Flame we all partook it there

From him, her, you and me.
