The words that are this song
For whom that you have strung
These words are really strong
Both when read and when sung

A worthy tribute indeed Andrew - the words of the song too say so much to this reader. Thank you for sharing the both.

Andrew Charles Forrest said:

This is 100% inspired by Tom Waits song \"Rainbow Sleeves\" sung here by Ms Lee-Jones

You used to dream yourself away each night
To places that you\'ve never been
On wings made of wishes that you whispered to yourself
Back when every night the moon and you would sweep away
To places that you knew you would never get the blues

Now whiskey gives you wings to carry each one of your dreams
And the moon does not belong to you
But I believe that your heart keeps young dreams
Well, I\'ve been told to keep from ever growing old
And a heart that has been broken will be stronger when it mends

Don\'t let the blues stop your singing
Darling, you only got a broken wing
Hey, you just hang on to my rainbow
Hang on to my rainbow
Hang on to my rainbow sleeves

Hi Charles,

Thanks for your insightful and good write.

A heart-touching read Andrew with the pain of loss so tellingly written - - - one to keep for me is this gentle lament. Thank you for posting it.

That pain within us may end but we know that they will not have left as they will always be with us.

dusk arising said:

I think we pass on by example that which was passed to us by example. Some of us were given a bad example which they did not wish to pass on and took steps to ensure loved ones did not see.
Its heartwarming to read your words.

Suresh said:

Because greed and society has not corrupted their innocence.
Why do people have a caring and loving bond with their grandchildren, because they are the responsibility of their children.
Nice recollection

A sad poem as so many people do not listen, they may hear but they will never understand, the one at I can always do is listen. I have helped so many sort themselves out just by listening.

orchidee said:

A fine write Andrew. The listening can be the thing - \'being there\'. You did something good!
If it wasn\'t so serious a theme - Meanwhile - you done any work in harm reduction to stop me singing? That\'s terribly harmful - to anyone! (lol).
