Change


(Keyboard solo)

She stares at the blinds
In images in her mind
She finds herself helpless
She can do nothing but sigh

She excuses herself and he leaves her to be on her own
Where she hides and she thinks about the last
Her past haunts as she walks across the bright silver chair
They stay quiet and to each other they stare

She stares at the album left in the dust
As she tries to get hold of her life in despair
But it seems so unfair

And nothing she says, can undo the change
And nothing she says, can redo (the change)

I bow down to You for an all new start
And life from that cold lifeless frame

Gone with the ashes
And left with all but just dreams
All to a better place
Leaving us with the pain
Absence of her is still known
Her presence will be felt
Until life’s ends shall meet

(Guitar solo)

Change... it hurts.. yet the optimism in thinking "until life's ends shall meet"

lovely Ajey...

Brosreview said...

@Viji - Yea, someone's optimism made me write this. I appreciate you identifying that.

Thank you!!!

I have seen people turning happy at such a grave loss in reality.
Foolishly mean.

Nice piece, with real love expressed in the ultimate line about the ultimate meet...

Brosreview said...

@sudharm baxi - True!!! Thank you!!!

I actually read this two ways Ajey.
One an end of a relationship, the other the end of a life here and now.Or maybe it's just the end of anything.Everything seems to come to an end at some point.
It's just that last verse seems to highlight an actual physical death more.
But I like that it can be read (to me)in different ways.
Ajey I am thinking, you need to wear Daisies in your hair, take a happy pill and swim naked in the Sea.
(Did I make you smile?)

Brosreview said...

@SarahA - You did make me smile. Thanks for reading.
