I thought no, so I have gone for another song that means a lot to me, it often reflects my life. It’s by Annie Lennox and it’s “Through the glass darkly”
“Through The Glass Darkly”
I’m caught up in the middle
But I’ll take it to the end
It’s comin back together
And it’s breakin’ down again
If I could find a reason
I’d say you were my friend
If I could find a reason
I’d say it once again
When I’m with you the days are bittersweet
Still I can’t remember what it feels to be complete
I’ve tried pretending
But it drives me of my feet
I don’t know what its coming to
But I’m looking through
The glass darkly… yea
Come and go
Playin’ blues songs on my radio
Shadows still. appear
In the house tonight
Ghosts that come in from the past
All those ghosts that keep on comin’ back
Slidin’ through the walls
And my windows
When I’m with you
The nights are cold and long
Still can’t remember what
It feels like to be strong
I’ve tried to blend in
But it seems I don’t belong
I don’t know what it’s comin’ to
But I’m looking through the glass darkly… yea
Can I find you? can I find you? I can’t find you… yea Lyrics from A to Z Lyrics.
Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

Interesting song choice sis 💜
I do live this one Sis 💜💜
It was a toss-up for me and I went with the other, but love this one too!
New to me though I am familiar with Annie Lennox. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Glad you like it it’s a great song 💜💜💜
Serendipitous synchronicity, I’d say, with today’s poem over on ECR, with the lines you quoted, to wit:
“Only in darkness can we see the light.
Only in silence can we hear the music….”
Yes indeed through the glass darkly we might see the light 💜😁😁
I appreciate the lyrics, Willow! It is profound that only in darkness can we see the faintest light, only in the deepest sorrow we could hear the voice of our soul. Nice pick! ❤
Thank you Miriam 💜💜
You’re welcome. We share the same feeling of a little different kind!! ❤ ❤ Take care!
You too 💜
