Sitting here listening to the beautiful Lazarus by Porcupine Tree this morning. For me, this will always be a special song. It was the song that I sang down the phone to a lady 6000 miles away one night. The rest, is now history. Perhaps, given this introduction, the poem has more meaning?
This poem is included in my recent collection – Best Laid Plans – Available from Amazon.
Memories fade as the years gently pass
The urgency of attraction has gone too
Wished fond goodbye as the years flew
But Lazarus sings still from time to time
Our bond slowly strengthens bit by bit
Shared experiences and the pass of time
Takes care of that my dear partner in crime
As our Lazarus makes his soulful reappearance
Who would have ever have given us a chance at all
The unlikely impossibleness of such a meeting
Our differences should have made our time fleeting
But beautiful Lazarus was our siren song
Kept us together all along.
