Seventeen years ago
« on: August 29, 2010, 07:22:34 AM »
Seventeen years ago just about this same hour; 1.00pm , I was in the kitchen along with my   boyfriends mother, trying to convince the on-call doctor to help expedite my dying boyfriend's imminent death.
He listened to our plea, and made us swear that this has to remain between the three of us. He then left...off to the pharmacy to get the "stuff".
He was gone for what seemed like hours and we started thinking that he had left us hanging. But he returned asking for something strong to drink because it was his "first".
The tension and agony was indescribable.

By 5:00pm it was all over.

(Pardon me, but I have to write this down because from time to time what we did back then still comes back to haunt me....especially on the anniversary of his death)

"Into The West"

Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You’ve come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You're only sleeping

[Chorus]
What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home

And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
All souls pass

Hope fades
Into the world of night
Through shadows falling
Out of memory and time
Don't say: «We have come now to the end»
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again

And you'll be here in my arms
Just sleeping

[Chorus]

And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass
Into the West
