Wish He Had Stayed Longer


One last stop

James Dean made as he hurried

To get down the road for another race

Do you wonder if he had stayed a little longer

If I had stayed a little longerĀ  and not rushed off

Would my departure into the cool night be noticed

Somehow I know the answer even without hearing

There is no fame involved and none wanted

Only the assurance I am thought of

When I feel most invisible

And wanted when I

First appear

* James Dean’s Last stop on September 30, 1955 was at Blackwell’s Corner on Route 466 (now 46) where he bought an Apple and a Coke. A few minutes later he was killed in an auto accident. This picture is taken of a billboard at Blakwell’s Corner in the Worlds Largest Parking Lot, at least that’s how it is billed.

  1. James Dean looks like, the way I envision you looking when you were his age. The words are beautiful…everyone’s wish…I would imagine.
