For Feelin So Blue

Friends humor and play me
(They know I'm chra-zee)
Patsy sings blue
God I miss you

So lone-lee now
Never knew how
without you to cope
Losing false hope
that keeps me stumbling
nowhere, I hear rumbling
and mumbling of wraiths
Fading blind faith...

Need your cozy croon
Your comforting tune
Your old fashioned song
Don't seem to belong
anywhere anymore
You ache to my core

Why be so cruel
Why leave this old fool
alone with his fears
after too many years

Why leave me behind
to fumble and find
that smile in the den
that wide joyful grin
Can't look long your way
I wrench back away
to wander the tomb
of one vacant room
one made up bed
Are you really dead...

Tell me what to do
to replace my lost you
how to turn off our light
and sleep alone tonight

"Crazy": Written by Willie Nelson and performed by the late Patsy Cline

    You have brought me to tears more times than I can count, Tim. I'm going for the box of tissue...this is such a beautiful, heartfelt write...I read your sweet comments on my haiku. I think you would make a great dolphin...intelligent, gentle, free with an ocean to explore...sounds perfect. Big hug, Rhonda

    This is a sad one, Tim. I do love that patsy Cline song that you referenced. Willie Nelson has such great ones too. Your poem is moving, like their songs. soupmail.
