The “living legacy” dies at 56
Dan Fogelberg sings
“Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain”
And dies peacefully in Maine.
Earlier he proclaimed himself
“A living legacy to the leader of the band”
Who was “tired” and whose eyes were “growing old”.
Then promised love in “Longer”:
"Longer than there've been fishes in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there've been stars up in the heavens
I've been in love with you.
Stronger than any mountain cathedral
Truer than any tree ever grew
Deeper than any forest primeval
I am in love with you."
Though the living legacy is gone,
He lives in me with every raindrop that falls,
With every strum on my guitar.
With every love that lingers on.
