Lullaby for Jasmine, 2

So now we’ve come to face the facts
That this sweet love could never last
Not for lack of soul or heart
No one’s fault that we’ve come apart

You’re not hurting me, I’m not hurting you
It’s a pain we’ll share, between us two
And after time the wounds will start to heal
With gratitude that this once was real

So close the book, put it on the shelves
Keep its secrets locked within ourselves
What might have been must stay a dream
Let it float away on down time’s stream….

Long Distance Relationship

I’m gonna take all my dreams
Pack them in some boxes
Ship them across the ocean
To you

And then you can take them out
And keep them in your pockets
Till I come back to share them
With you

I’m gonna upload my heart
Put it in the cloud
Gigabytes of love
For you

And I’ll give you the key
So access is allowed
For nobody else
But you

(bridge)
Kilometers won’t kill our love
As long as I can see your smiles
I don’t care about the miles (2x)

I’m gonna livestream my tears
Of joy so you can kiss them
Until I am next
To you

And the lonely times
I know we’ll never miss them
Once we are together
We two
When once again I am one
With you

Favorite Love Songs

In response to a question from a recent conversation, I went back and looked through my post listing some of my favorite songs… and I was quite surprised to notice that with the possible exception of “The Story in Your Eyes” by the Moody Blues, I didn’t really have any love songs on the list.

So let me fix that omission right away!

As with the previous list, I’m just jotting these down as they occur to me, no particular order of preference yet…

  1. “Isn’t Life Strange,” Moody Blues
  2. “Love and Affection,” Joan Armatrading
  3. “In Your Eyes,” Peter Gabriel
  4. “What is Life,” George Harrison
  5. “Lay Lady Lay,” Bob Dylan
  6. “Heartbeat,” King Crimson
  7. “Come to Me,” Bjork
  8. “Follow Me Follow You,” Genesis
  9. “How Can I Tell You,” Cat Stevens
