Her Eyes Were Blue

Seeing the name on a gravestone grey Wishing you had more positive things to say The wind throws you around like a prized fighter Rambling off quotes from your favourite writer Always a cliffhanger, a wanting of something more Getting caught in the deafening downpour I remember your favourite poem Twas an Irish blessing for your home Seeing your name in lights Embracing you on one of the coldest nights You were so beautiful - a gem to compare Eyes of blue and your sandy hair I wanted to be an artist when I was a teen I wanted to be a director - you'd steal every scene I loved you with my whole heart No need for auditions - you know you got the part Seeing your name on a gravestone grey Takes me back to my favourite day Wishing I could hold you one more time Always a Poet - I chose for my life to rhyme Your beauty captured by camera flash Always saving up for a coffee - having just the right amount of cash Drinking my tea and seeing the world through the eye of a writer Listening to your favourite chorus - waving your Zippo lighter You make my world more blue and grey I love you very much is what I wish I could say One last time
