I HOLD YOU                                        
 THE STORY

deep sad poems of grieving free music downloads deep sad spoken word poems

In the silent space of my heart
            I hold you
                        know you are going

            forevermore apart

 

I keep you
in a silent space in my heart

            You are dying
            I am not crying

 

But inside a silence
            I hold you
                        know you are dying
            I keep you
                        while you are going
            I hold you
                        I hope you know it

            silent grieving, silent loving

THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG

I met a musician once only. He played a piece he had written
when a friend was dying. These are the words that came to me.

We were supposed to meet again. We didn't.

Years later, I showed the words to a composer.
She started to cry, did not want to do music. Too sad.

More years passed. Fast forward to January 2010.
Mark Corwin, friend, sound producer, composer
(mainly electroacoustic music) improvised some music,
to which I heard the words, Call to the Living.

And then this piece came to mind. Maybe he could create music
that would fit with I Hold You. And he did.

 

Deep Sad Poems. Grief Poem.
In the silent space of my heart, I hold you,
know you are going.
In the sacred space of my heart, I hold you.
Poems for the Dead. Poems of Sadness.
Death Poems.

A dozen years ago,
I began to wake up
with word pieces -
words music, spoken word, songs -
in my head.
Escape velocity.
Echo of the echo.
Tank almost empty.
Can't cross the gap.
Welcome into my world.
