Missing Pieces

I’m struck by this poem. It was written by Joe Walsh as part of a song he composed titled “County Fair,” found on his album So What.

Found an old puzzle somebody had quit
Tried a few pieces and hoped that they’d fit
But they’re going together so slowly
It may take me forever to know
If it’s only a puzzle

Parts of the puzzle will never be found
And even though pieces are gone
It’s a county fair picture, part of me’s there
Some of the pieces are still at the fair
And they may be forever
