Song Lyric Sunday. To those I miss.

The lovely Helen Espinosa who has been missing her daughter this week has set us our Song Lyric Sunday . : ‘Post a song about missing someone you love.  Let’s let them know how much we miss them and can’t wait to see them again.’

Rules and Pingback here 


This  is  just  so  hard  for  me  right  now  as  I am missing  so  many people  in my  life. Sadly  things  are  just  getting  worse  and  worse  , every  time  I  think  there is  a light  at  the  end  of  the  tunnel it  turns out  to be  the  the  express  train  heading  right  at  me.

So  what  to  do, the pain is  excruciating  and  things  are  just  tearing  my  family  apart  and  all I can do is  watch. I live in  fear  of  the next  blow up  …one is  actually  imminent.

What  to  choose I  do not  know?

Well the  way I  feel  now  it  is  harder  for  me  to  cope  with   my  son  and  his  family  removing  themselves  from  my  life , the loss of  my sister and my  best  friend  being  on  the other  side of  the  country !

Did I  say  a blow up  was imminent   well it  just  happened  again! I just feel  so low  and physically  sick.

This  is  too painful  to  write  so I shall let  Sia  say it  all for  me.

Eye of the Needle
Take me down
I’m feeling now
And if I move on
I admit you’re gone
And I ain’t ready
And I’ll hold steady
Yeah I’ll hold you in my arms
In my arms, in my arms
And you’re locked inside my heart
And your melody’s an art
And I won’t let the terror in, I’m stealing time
Through the eye of the needle
Step and repeat
Tears fall to the beat
Smile through the pain
Feel the acid rain
And I ain’t ready
But I’ll hold steady
Yeah I’ll hold you in my arms
In my arms, in my arms
And you’re locked inside my heart
And your melody’s an art
And I won’t let the terror in, I’m stealing time
Through the eye of the needle
My bags heavy
Been filled by me
They weigh me down
Carry them ’round
It’s all mine all mine
I am blinded by the eye of the needle

    I’m so sorry to hear of your life circumstances. I hope one day you are able to reconnect with those who mean the most to you. I know it must be hard to carry on like this.

    I really hope things get better for you.

        I understand. I have a half-sister who has shut me out of her life. I know how hard it is. It really does get difficult to remain hopeful.

        If you ever need a listening ear I’m here. I have contact details on my blog.

        Sadly my sister died last year, the real grief I have is that my youngest son and his family will have nothing to do with my husband and I. Thank you for your kindness.

        You’re welcome. If I could I’d totally reach through my computer screen and give you a hug right now.

    I’m so sorry things haven’t gotten any better, Willow. Don’t give up hope. Time really does help. I’m hoping it will for you.

    The song is heartbreaking and beautiful. I’ve really loved every Sia song I’ve heard. I should probably listen to her more.

    Take care Willow. Hugs and love coming your way from all the way across the ocean. ❤

    I have no idea what’s going on or what to say that might help. Your comment about the express train put me in mind of a beloved movie of mine “They might be Giants.” You only have a limited time here so I would suggest learning to sing a new song each day. If you sing it loud enough, they will hear you. Not overnight but eventually.
