the sky gently weeps

washing away my tears…

dampening my fears…

for a moment

you get close enough

to touch me

as my broken heart opens

to the chance of love

“While My Guitar Gently Weeps”   George Harrison

lyrics ~

I look at you all see the love there that’s sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps
I don’t know why nobody told you how to unfold your love
I don’t know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you.

I look at the world and I notice it’s turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps
I don’t know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don’t know how you were inverted
No one alerted you.

I look from the wings of the play you are staging
While my guitar gently weeps
‘Cause I’m sitting here doing nothing but aging
Still my guitar gently weeps.

  1. hedgewitch

    The haiku merges gracefully into the longer version here, dani, and that’s my all time favorite Harrison tune. Thanks for both.

  2. i’ve always liked that song, but i like my Sista Poet better!

  3. I am glad you are sharing some of your own poetry this month. Everyone desires the ‘chance of love.’

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
