dusk arising

Veronica

well she brought out the best and the worst in me
helped me to a place i shouldn't ought'a have been
gave me a rhyme with her space and her time
in another day i would'a made her all mine

     yes i wrote her a song about two fishes in the sea
     could have given her name but i called her blue V
     now everyone knows, how i was falling apart
     the things i could do if i only had the heart of
                                Veronica,    Veronica  ---  aaaa

doesn't eat all day i fear she's wasting away
says she types more words than ever she'd say
hal -  ooo -  me  is her salad you see
or its pasta and philly but she never drinks tea

hands upon her eyes now, hiding from me
dontcha put me on the spot you know how quiet i'll be
but I've sat and I heard in small hours of night
held in her spell all my senses alight

      yes i wrote her a song about two fishes in the sea
      could have given her name but i called her blue V
      now everyone knows, how i was falling apart
      the things i could do if i only had the heart of
                             Veronica,    Veronica  ---  aaaa

middle 8
             and before my eyes she cries into the night

                                           for all the lies she heard
             in spite of all the light i'd bring

                                          i'd write this song and sing.....

                     for veronica     yes veronica   ---  aaaa

She types into a box where only i can see
there's something runs away with veronica and me
i wanna see her face but then her data runs out
part of me is on the rooftop and i'm shouting it out
                           Veronica.....  Veronica  ----   aaaa

maybe some day i'm gonna buy me this car
i'd travel in my van but then her seat is too hard
i gotta get to see her i'm in a bit of state
before some fella gets her dont wanna be too late

      yes i wrote her a song about two fishes in the sea
      could have given her name but i called her blue V
      now everyone knows, how i was falling apart
      the things i could do if i only had the heart of
                                Veronica,    Veronica  ---  aaaa

      Brilliance eludes me KB but i'll have a go! Intrigued?, was written whilst having a skype convo with her. Thank you kind sir.

          My goodness this was fun.......... what a great name to have: Veronica - one of a kind............like the poem........

          • dusk arising

            Veronica is most definitely a one of a kind special lady. It great fun to write this too. Pleased you enjoyed and thanks for commenting.

            Dust arisssssing you've risen to a star. Loved it.

            • dusk arising

              LOL, I've never been called dust before, though an insignificant speck i do admit to being. Stardom is for others though. I'm pleased you liked, thank you.

              • Heartwriter

                Lololol! I meant dusk. Sorry.

                You have a special talent and a middle eight too. How long since I heard the solo in the middle described thus. Beautiful, your friend must have been deeply touched. Joe

                • dusk arising

                  Yeah you gotta have a middle 8, it takes the melody to a different place. Pleased you liked this, Veronica was the lady who got me writing, got me started under a different nom de plume on here last year.
                  So it's only right that i should find myself writing about her (there are other pieces) and yes publish on here.
                  Thanks for your kind words.

                  Your words swished side to side
                  A rhythm still stuck in my mind
                  A magnificent fella does this rhyme
                  Like Popeye the Sailor Man

                  This was brilliant buddy

                  • dusk arising

                    He he he Popeye "i brungds yer a present Olive, YAA gug gug gug gug gug"..
                    Glad you enjoyed this Dan

                    Great number and a tribute to your writing ability. Am sure Veronica will treasure these words.

                    • dusk arising

                      Thank you Fay. I really appreciate any comment from you on my pieces. I'm hoping Veronica will come and have a look for herself now and maybe contribute writings of her own on MPS.

                    • Goldfinch60

                      Super write da, I am sure that she appreciated your words - did you sing them to her?

                      • dusk arising

                        Yes i did actually, but only as i wrote the individual verses. It was written very light heartedly whilst she and i were in video call on skype. It was done for a bit of fun. Only recently did i dig it out and reflect upon what it meant at the time and how it was written. Yes i thought, this deserves putting into MPS.. .

                      • Candlewitch

                        an enchanting write....would love to hear it played and sung! most enjoyable!
