LEADING LADY

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


                  with every blink of my eyes,
                  I see a new frame
                  from a lifelong film
                  improvised and starring me.

                  so far I'm standing alone.
                  no leading lady
                  has made her entrance.
                  maybe there is none at all.

                  so play on,
                  I'm waiting
                  until the last reel
                  rolls by.

                  a soundtrack plays in my head.
                  not like Sinatra,
                  more like Tchaikovsky,
                  songs of things that have no names.

                  the movie continues
                  and the projector
                  is worn down.

                  I'm still on stage all alone.
                  no leading lady
                  has made her entrance.
                  maybe there is none at all.
