Tomorrow’s running towards me


The day the music died is almost here


And I cannot bear to see that Tuesday dawn


But still it creeps and it draws near


I know I will never see the blue sky the same again


I will never see the horizon through innocent eyes


I can’t see a plane cut through the clouds any more


Without hearing three thousand goodbyes


What do you tell yourself when each day’s over


And your mind keeps saying it can’t be so


What do you say to soothe yourself


When your heart just will not let go


And tomorrow’s racing towards me


The day the music died is drawing near


As Monday reaches a false, serene twilight


That hateful dawn is almost here


And in each haze of twilight


I see you slowly walking to me


At least that’s what I pretend inside


Because you’re the one I want to see


What can I tell myself when each day’s over


And my mind is certain it can’t be so


What can I say to soothe myself


When this heart just cannot let you go


That clear, perfect blue sky will never be perfect again


That horizon is forever corrupted in my eyes


Every plane that cuts through the clouds


Screams three thousand goodbyes


And tomorrow is bearing down the tracks


The day the music died is almost here


As Monday blazes a peaceful, lying twilight


That mournful dawn keeps drawing near


And in that haze of the tenth’s twilight


I can still see you here with me


Even if it’s just a beautiful lie, just pretend


Because you’re the only one I want to see


Can I still reach you after six long years


Can I still see your eyes so bright


Can I hold your hand just one last time


Just one time, can I lose this fight


So I can still feel your heart beat in rhythm with mine


And you can see me once more, just one more time


In this twilight

A most tearful, endearing piece full of passion and so very sincere. A bittersweet piece of a day we will never forget.....

Be safe,
Karen

Cade,

Welcome back: you've been missed.

No one writes such moving memorial poetry as you do. This one is powerfully effective, brings back the Twilight of rememberance. May we never forget.

God bless you, Sir.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(

A very beautiful piece that I can relate to whenever my wife is on a Scottish journey, oh so close but far away.
