Tracy Gaddin lost her fight to Bipolar. I thank Tracy's mum for sharing these precious insights.
Pumpkin time the revelry is over
I rise to my feet and step heavily to the door
My heart aches with the impending good-bye
An acute cacophony of feelings, and surge of energy
1 – 2 – 3 – 4
Then again 1-2-3-4, I will arrive at my destination
Calmed by the cool evening breeze, lulled by cricket calls
I put pen to paper then look to the morrow
My evening is now complete.
VASBYT – ALLES SAL REGKOM
(Hang in there – everything will come right)
From my cigarette spiralling smoke
Such is my new found hope
Once a past of despair
A broken heart beyond repair
A hunger for substitute nourishment
Vasbyt – alles sal regkom
Self-control so hard to implement
As night would lead to day
Till as late as possible I lay
Gathering my strength for the morrow
A dark musical escape from the sorrow
Down but far from out
That’s what I’m all about
With tenacity and Divine sustained will
I’m nearing the top of this hill
To those who have given me unfailing support
Thank you, and to my Loving Maker
Lord, open my lips and my mouth will sing Your praise
Break of Dawn
Break, break, break of dawn
Get up now, and don’t yawn
The bed is warm
I know you’re torn
It’s the break of dawn
A new day has just begun
Resist temptation party person
Look to the rising sun
There’s so many ways today to have fun.
If you decline the chance, you’ll have none.
Party person break, break, it’s day break,
Get up now and have the cake
Say the morning prayer for your soul’s sake
Get up now, it’s not too late.
Got my body, got my soul, got my brawn.
Thank you G-d, I’m so glad its dawn.
Sleep Eludes Me
Sleep eludes me
I have chased her for hours
I try to capture her by the lull of light lyrics on my radio
I try to trick her by teasing her with my bedroom light,
Pretending that her entrapment is not my aim.
My pulse races and thoughts rollercoaster through my mind
I toss to and fro
My throat is dry so I relieve this physical thirst
My belly rumbles and I satisfy this physical hunger
What I thirst for and at this hour of the morn
I cannot have satiated is the taste of your lips
What I hunger for also at this hour of the morn
And ache for is your touch
A simple caress of my face or your hand touching mine
I would revel in the experience of your body simply brushing past mine
