Believe Me My Dear


Carol Roth

The eyes of your heart saw an artist. You said,

"Write something for me. Donít be shy. Go ahead.

Plant the seed and shine your light,

Feed it love till you feel your delight".


One night on Long Island, out by the Sound

You filled up my heart with the me you had found.

"Your unique soul is a creative feast"

"Believe me, my dear, Iím Curzon Cortes".


A poet of words, fashion, and soul

Your drive to help others -- an insatiable goal.

Wherever youíve gone and whatever you are

Thank you for seeing my inner star.


On the Barcelona hill where you wanted to be

Below the villa looking out toward the sea

Rest sweetly, Curzon, -- feather in my soul

That tickles and lightens and begs me to grow.


Four lifetimes you lived in one 68 years.

I remember your love and my eyes fill with tears.

All the memories of you, of your heart, of that night,

I will honour and heed them till I feel your delight.
