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.

Someday, when I get home
I’ll kiss your lips with unbridled passion

Someday, when I get home
I’ll hold you close and feel your warmth

Someday, when I get home
I’ll whisper, “I love you” into your ear

Someday, when I get home
We’ll take long walks and hold each other’s hands

Someday, when I get home
We’ll fall asleep while watching the stars

Someday, when I get home
You’ll wake to see my smile

Someday, when I get home
We’ll plan our life and our future

Someday, if I get home
I promise I’ll never leave you again

Someday…

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…

MISUNDERSTOOD… a song

MISUNDERSTOOD

Image Credit

Cascading in a torrent

A raging river were her tears

How could he walk away from her

After all these years

She gave him all she had to give

Holding nothing back

But, now she’s standing all alone

He’s gone and that’s a fact

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He didn’t understand her words

They cut him like a knife

He’d given all he had to give

He truly loved his wife

But in the words, she spoke in sleep

She didn’t call his name

A wall went up, as his heart broke

It could never be the same

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Refrain)

Don’t walk away… Misunderstood

Press upon your heart and soul

Lean into the good

Wrap your arms around each other

Hold tight and don’t let go…

Be faithful in your happiness

And love – will make you whole

(Repeat refrain)
