Summer Blues |
Wish you were here to ease my fear,
So near but so far wherever you are,
My heart's reaching out to the stars,
Oh vast sky, you're kind to this lost soul,
Can you promise to heal my aching pain?
Can you warm up this old, cold spirit?
The grit of autumn pushes down the sun,
As the flowers have lost their fragrances,
Blue lagoon, you swoon over the horizon,
Far beyond my eyes, vast and wide yonder,
Over the azure sea and wavering water,
Along the shores of golden beaches,
As the tides roll on white sand beneath,
I can hear the foaming waves rollicking,
Blasting against solid rocks,
Between a long path with cypress trees,
I stand and wait, and waiting for you,
Where the sun sets, far beyond the blue sky,
Long ago moon, soon will turn to rainbow hues,
Summer blues, I am still here waiting for you,
Summer blues, I am here, dear sweet love...

I started this poem in the spring of 2003.
By the time I completed it today on
7 September 2003 - I stumbled upon
Pink Floyd's Song "Wish You Were Here"
Pink Floyd's lyric and my poem are.... entwined?
It was UNINTENTIONALLY since,
although I love the song, I have
never look at the lyric before.

Blue skies drives away Winter cold,
Spring showed her flings to Summer,
Searing heat greets the air daily,
Warm wind and hot sun spuns at my face,
It is great that leaves are turning brown,
Soon, Autumn Moon will swoon in the night sky!
Wish you were here|
So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail? A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change? And did you exchange
a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl,
year after year,
running over the same old ground. What have we found?
The same old fears,
wish you were here.
