Vale Stephen Sondheim

Look at what you’ve done,

Then at what you want,

Not at where you are,

What you’ll be

Look at all the things

You gave to me.

- Move On, from Sunday in the Park with George, 1984music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

Sometimes people leave you

halfway through the wood.

Do not let it grieve you.

No one leaves for good.

- No one is Alone, from Into the Woods, 1986, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

In memory of Stephen Sondheim, March 22, 1930 - November 26, 2021. 

Thank you for the words and music and for enriching our lives beyond measure.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Sondheim.
