THE TRUEST FAN
by j.kiley

The Truest Fan
Feelings Broken
For Only Just Finding You
You possess
A Beautiful Power
A Haunting Voice
It Tears through my Soul

Hope you find Paradise
Divine Sweet Poet
Deep inside you
The Rock Legend
Whose Presence Passes
Like Melting Energy
Inside the Spirit

Your Voice
Touched by Angels
The Deepest Lyrics
Touched
By The Muse
Your Musical Gift
Shared with the World

More people are touched
By you than Imagined

Sad
My Heart
Hearing your Voice
Singing ‘The Promise’
You have left Too Soon

Yearning for You
But you’re gone
Inspiration
Your Gift
Giving to Souls
Who just listen
RIP Sweet Poet

Big Little Lies | HBO Series


Big Little Lies – HBO Series Trailer

HBO’s Limited Series ‘Big Little Lies’ [Adapted from Book by Liane Moriarty (Australian Author with Six Internationally Best Selling Novels plus more to come)].  The series is meant to tell the story from the book. Well, at the end of S1 E3 ‘Living the Dream’ the song ‘Harvest Moon’ by Neil Young is played for  married couple Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood) while they are dancing tenderly. ‘Big Little Lies’ also stars Reese Witherspoon . Shailene Woodley . Zoe Kravitz [Lenny Kravitz daughter] . Laura Dern . plus lots more talent. Did I mention it is a murder mystery & no one knows who’s dead? The series may keep it that way until the end. No hints just questioning potential suspects or witnesses. Someone is both.

Hope you feel the dancing from Neil Young’s song ‘Harvest Moon’ . Lovely | Beautiful | Overflows with Love

Neil Young – Harvest Moon

“Harvest Moon”
by Neil Young

Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleepin’
We could dream this night away.

But there’s a full moon risin’
Let’s go dancin’ in the light
We know where the music’s playin’
Let’s go out and feel the night.

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart.

But now it’s gettin’ late
And the moon is climbin’ high
I want to celebrate
See it shinin’ in your eye.

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

The Empty Chair

Oscar Nominee for Best Song 2017 from the Documentary ‘Jim: The James Foley Story’

James Foley was a journalist who reported “conflict news” . meaning he went to Libya but came home . meaning he went to Syria . he did not return . instead ISIS kidnapped him with other journalists who did come home.

He was so full of life. I have watched the documentary and was awe inspired by his genuine concern and sincerity toward the people with whom he befriended and told their story. He went where the bombs were dropping and the bullets went whizzing by. What compelled him to return to the Middle East after being in Libya when Qaddafi was being overthrown and eventually assassinated by a brutal crowd.

Why he went back . his family search for answers. He wasn’t happy just taking life easy.

Listen to the song ‘The Empty Chair’ (I felt it should have won the Oscar for Best Song but instead an unbearable song to listen to from La La Land received the honors.) It speaks for Jim who will never come home. So moving and so is his whole story. Just reading the lyrics out loud to ‘The Empty Chair’ makes me cry. The same happens hearing Sting singing the song.

The Empty Chair – Sting (by J. Ralph & Sting

THE EMPTY CHAIR

If I should close my eyes, that my soul can see
And there’s a place at the table that you saved for me
So many thousand miles over land and sea
I hope to dare, that you hear my prayer
And somehow I’ll be there
It’s but a concrete floor where my head will lay
And though the walls of this prison are as cold as clay
But there’s a shaft of light where I count my days
So don’t despair of the empty chair
And somehow I’ll be there
Some days I’m strong, some days I’m weak
And days I’m so broken I can barely speak
There’s a place in my head where my thoughts still roam
Where somehow I’ve come home
And when the Winter comes and the trees lie bare
And you just stare out the window in the darkness there
Well I was always late for every meal you’ll swear
But keep my place and the empty chair
And somehow I’ll be there
And somehow I’ll be there
