The Last Song… a poem/song

You’re a damaged song

All your lyrics are wrong

How did you get this way?

Where is the child

That was carefree and wild?

What happened that dreadful day?

Alas I can see

The image is me

No music left in my soul.

A strumming of time

Without rhythm or rhyme

Has finally taken its toll.

Where once was an opus

Of treble clef notes

And bass that rippled the air.

Are now broken tones

Solitary, old bones

Displayed on a sheet of despair.

GOODBYES… a quick song

I remember when I was little

And I held my daddy’s hand

The memories come flooding in

So, I do the best I can

—————–

To try and hold back the tears

As I say my last goodbyes

Feeling the swelling of my heart

That’s spilling from my eyes

——————

You see, daddy always loved me

And I always knew it was true

And that is why, my little one

I always say – I love you

——————-

And there’ll come a time someday

When you will be standing where I do

Holding the hand of your little one

And saying – I love you, too

Yeah, holding the hand of your little one

And saying – I love you, too

MOONLIGHT… a short song

Why can’t the stars all come down from the night?
Clearing the cobwebs and making it bright.
And, where is the hero I promised to be?
Lost in whirlwind I tread cautiously.
 
Maybe tomorrow I’ll be washed by the rain
Removing this heartache
Removing this pain
And I never dreamed that I’d be here alone…
Yeah, I’ll keep on living…
And you’ll still be gone.
 
Moonlight it still shines there - down on the sands.
The memory is etched of us still holding hands.
And mountain tops glisten too peaked with their snow.
A lifetime is fading from years long ago.
 
Maybe tomorrow I’ll be washed by the rain
Removing this heartache
Removing this pain
And I never dreamed that I’d be here alone…
Yeah, I’ll keep on living…
And you’ll still be gone.


(Repeat)

WHERE’S THE GOODBYE…a song

Remember the times we talked through the night?

Yeah, that seems like so long ago…

And, maybe come one day it will be alright,

But, tonight I’m still here alone…

~~~~~~

(Chorus)

Why did the wind blow and take you away?

Where is the rainbow you promised that day?

Where are church bells we planned for all year?

Where’s the goodbye…

Why aren’t you here?

~~~~~~

Rainbow

I noticed the tide flow here on this beach.

It rushes in and out, but it’s always in reach.

And the seagulls swoop down and call out your name.

I know what they’re feeling…

I’m feeling the same…

~~~~~~

Silhouette of Man Standing on Rock Surrounded by Body of Water

(Repeat Chorus)

~~~~~~

Here at your headstone my tears falling down…

The silence it echo’s when they hit the ground.

And I know you’re up there and watching me – still.

But this broken heart’s… gonna take time to heal…

Why did the wind blow and take you away?

Where is the rainbow you promised that day?

Where are church bells we planned for all year?

Where’s the goodbye… I needed to hear…

Why did the wind blow and take you away?

Where is the rainbow you promised that day?

Where are church bells we planned for all year?

Where’s the goodbye… I needed to hear…

Yeah, where’s the goodbye… I – still – need- you – here…
