Sadly Beautiful

There is a song that gets to me every time I hear it.
Its melody is so haunting.

 To want and to love someone, when the world around you flies the onlooking planes overhead, to try and shoot down every glance and every chance….

When the walls of life’s circumstanes  hold you back from what you can have….. And all you seem to have to fight against it are Letters falling from the sky…like the tears of missing them can spill down from the eyes.
CIVIL TWILIGHT….”Letters from the Sky”

Lyrics:One of these days the sky’s gonna break
And everything will escape, and I’ll know
One of these days the mountains are gonna fall
Into the sea, and they’ll know

That you and I were made for this
I was made to taste your kiss
We were made to never fall away
Never fall away

One of these days letters are gonna fall
From the sky telling us all to go free
But until that day I’ll find a way to let everybody know
That you’re coming back, you’re coming back for me

‘Cause even though you left me here
I have nothing left to fear
These are only walls that hold me here
Hold me here, hold me here

One day soon I’ll hold you like the sun holds the moon
And we will hear those planes overhead
And we won’t have to be scared
We won’t have to be, we won’t have to be scared

You’re coming back for me
You’re coming back for me

You’re coming back to me

    You are so right. Haunting is THE right word! 🙂
    It’s so hard to feel what you are feeling. It does crush you. Makes your heart hurt. It’s not fun, at all. Even looking back on all the beauty and funny moments of the past hurts. I always listen to Duffy – I’m Scared when I feel that way. 😦
    Try to have a day that’s ok, please. 🙂

    To feel what I am feeling. How about sheer elation of heaven when I am near him, hear from him am with him and more. When he is gone from me, I understand…..due to circumstances,…is more than most of the time….I feel empty
    You get that, right? 🙂
