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.
