Falling Slowly

Today, November 19th is the 2nd anniversary of my brother’s death. His body died on the 22nd but his spirit died today. It feels like so long ago now yet it hasn’t been long at all. I still can’t believe that he left me alone here. We are getting ready to have Thanksgiving at my parent’s house next week. I’m hoping that we’ll all make it through without too much sadness. I feel like we should set a place for Mike at the table – or is that morbid??

This song is a love song but the lyrics make me think of Mike and our lost opportunities. How I wish we still had time.

I don’t know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can’t react
And games that never amount
To more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ll make it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can’t go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I’m painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You’ve made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I’ll sing along
