Don’t give up! (This Funeral blues, for everyone)

That old blues is wailing for my soul

melancholy is crying out of emptiness’

the song remained to be fulfilled

I still have my old Takamine, who is

singing thru my fingers, and my voice

is crying out a mournful cry for the lost

and the innocent, but I forgotten their names

as time is passing by, let the mourner out

the funeral is here, flowers are dying

and we are all dressed in black

So I go back in memories and feelings

of what’s right and wrong, still singing

that old song, “where do we go now . . .”

and “wherever you are . . “ you are still

giving me strength to go on . . . Sorrow

and tears. . . What have we become?

are we empty bodies’ without hope?

No! . . . We are still struggling for this day

and we never going to give up!

Very powerful, made me wonder about my own death

Dan , I believe people are like ships. All are on a journey through turbulant waters, and all of them in the end are abandoned, sunk or skuppered. However sad this may sound. Rejoice in the fact that on all occasions, the crew survived and went on to something better. Be strong .you'r a great captain for your ship. Regards Steve
