When the West Wind Blew

I was worn and weary

When the west wind blew

I was feeling fretful

Wasn’t over you!

God was in his heaven

While his world it bled

“I can’t do this anymore!”

Last words you said.

 

I was reading Nietzsche

And was bleeding verse

Philosophy AND poetry

Was feeling worse!

God was in his heaven

(Not in Nietzsche’s head!)

He was like our romance

Decomposed and dead!

 

I was worn and weary

When the west wind blew

Told me that you loved me

And then vowed, “It’s true!”

God was in his heaven

While my heart it bled

“Don’t do this, it’s killing me”

Last words I said.

 

I was pumping iron

Turned myself to steel

Sculptured like a statue

So I could not feel

God looked down from heaven

Breathed a cynic’s sigh

“Muscle makes the man, “he said’s

“A lovesick lie!”

 

I was worn and weary

When the west wind blew

Thought about you aging

As my grey hairs grew

God sat safe in heaven

He could take his time

He weren’t penning poems

Running out of rhyme

 

I was growing older;

With my grief, I grew

Told no one about us

So nobody knew

God was in his heaven

And he saw me weep

Said he’d not forsake me,

But, hey, talk is cheap.

 

I was worn and weary

When the west wind blew

Prayed, “I’m broken-hearted!”

God said, “Join the queue!

Life is like a lesson,”

Lord above did add

“One day, all this heartache

It won’t seem so bad.”

 

I’d been tried and tested

When you got in touch

Thirty years of sorrow

Must amount to much

God came down from heaven

He had grown a heart!

Glued us back together

So we’d never part

 

I was worn and weary

When the west wind blew

Went and dried my tears up

Like the morning dew

God was back in heaven

And the world seemed right

Miracles can happen

But not over night!
