Mimi, just a few weeks ago, you stood
on stage at the Prince Music Theater
and gave us strength with your moving
farewell for Ray Duval,
your remembrance of things past.
And now, you and your family
are saying good-bye to your son-in-law.
May a field of amaryllises bloom
and brighten the night,
swaying and dancing in the wind,
guiding him on his way
into deepest timelessness.
Instead of hugs, a link to this moving ballet, which, like amaryllises that were Cut Off, have come alive, moving in the wind.
This farewell dirge is performed by the TALK Dance Company, choreographed by Stephen Wynne, and performed by Michael Bishop, Donavan Davis, Erik Sampson, Brittany Sima, Michelle Sipes, DeMarcus Suggs, Stefan Wright, and Scarlett Wynne.
