    you said goodbye
    I watched love fly
    don’t wanna cry
    you turned away
    what could I say?
    I thought you’d stay
    when the rain came pouring down
    all I heard was the sad sound
    of my heart beating slower still
    oh, my love, you left too soon
    when two souls seemed together and so true
    you said goodbye
    I watched love fly
    don’t wanna cry
    then came the pain
    alone again
    as the rain came pouring down
    all I heard was the sad sound
    of my heart beating slower still
    oh, my love, you left too soon
    when two souls seemed together and so true
    sad chords always make me cry
    these frozen teardrops in my eyes
    fill the ice pond where my hopes once lay
    I guess I’ll need to start again
    and in time forget the way I feel today
    and still the rain came pouring down
    but all I heard was the sad sound
    of my heart beating slower still
    oh, my love, you left too soon
    when two souls seemed together and so true
    if only you had turned around
    heard my heart beat a lonely sound
    out of rhythm and so out of tune
    I guess I’ll need to start again
    and in time forget the way I feel today
    I watched love fly
    sad chords goodbye

Sad Chords Goodbye (2012) by Nigel Spencer and Giovanna Sclafani

http://www.reverbnation.com/open_graph/song/15604575?1336410755    It’s and honor and privilege to have been asked to write the lyrics for the beautiful music of Nigel Spencer,  This song is the result of our recent collaboration and I am so happy and pleased at the results.  Nigel was greatly influenced by the music of the Moody Blues and it shows in his wonderful music. Please check out all of his music on reverbnation. He has made many albums over the years and his music is outstanding and needs to be heard and appreciated by the whole world…. This song Sad Chords Goodbye brings tears to my eyes much like Nights in White Satin does to me.  

You can’t see me (sad song)

You turned away

and were gone

taking with you my song

 

you couldn’t stay

‘Cause you’re not free

what does it matter

What does it matter to me

well it just means everything

everything to me

 

I hope you’d stay

but you’re not free

now there’s nothing left

nothing left for me

because you can’t see

No you just can’t see me

 

I wrote you a note

I know that you knew

that I had high hopes

but hopes can’t survive

without you near

If only you could hear

my heart cry

a love so true

like you really knew

 

Now I’m feeling blue,

Oh so blue, without you.

Oh do you ever give me a thought,

late at night.

Do you ever think of what could be,

If only you could stay,

Oh how beautiful it would be.

It would be like a dream come true,

Oh what a dream!

what a dream for me and you,

it would be like heaven,

But we can’t be in heaven now.

we’ll just have to wait somehow,

for heaven!november-sunset-on-the-gulf-2

Where Love has flown (c,) Copyright Oct.12,2012

Where love has flown

‘Golden and silver light flashing across the sky

Red sunsets and pale moon, love that never dies’

 

In the dark blue haze of twilight,

Shadows dancing across the sky!

Birds flying high, far from sight,

Images of him flash before my eyes!

 

In the dim light,

Birds are flying high,

Touching the sky.

Where have they gone?

Have they heard heavens song?

 

 

Dawn brings the golden sunlight shining.

Blue birds singing nearby me,

As I gaze in the clear blue skies,

A vision of him again flashes,

Before my eyes!

Where has he gone?

Has he heard heavens song?

 

Memories of love from days of past,

Love meant to last.

Where has love flown?

Has it heard heaven’s song?

It’s up to you now


my wonderful mom 2009

This is a true story about my father
my first encounter with the supernatural
,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Father of mine
 you came home to die
 as you wished
you laughed in a sarcastic way
when they brought you home that day
when mom said honey, you're home
for you must have known
you would be leaving soon
you tried to fight it dad
the cancer was so bad
you gave it all you had
you fought the good fight
though tired and sad
you tried to be strong
for mom and us
the nurse gave you a liquid
to ease your pain
magic morphine
you never woke up again
I heard you crying through the night
awake, yet asleep
Morning came and all was silent
as i had tea with mom
in your favorite chair
I saw you fly past me
above me, in the air
for a brief second
i saw your face
with a translucent body
without arms or feet
as you looked hurried
and worried
"It's up to you now"
I heard you say
in your familiar voice
then you went away
then,in your room I found
your cold lifeless body
no respirations, no sound
I knew at that moment
your spirit had flown
I should have known
 and you were right Dad
It is up to me now
and It was to come true
I took care of mom for you
like you asked me to
and I still do!
I love you
I miss you dad!
