I Will Follow You Into the Dark

No words are coming to me today. There’s sadness in my heart. It’s dark and rainy too. Just want to stay in bed on days like this. Headed to the funeral home later to say goodbye to a cousin that died suddenly a few days ago. I want to be happy that Meggie is getting married, but my heart breaks for my cousin’s family. They are in mourning while we are celebrating. It isn’t fair. But who said life was supposed to be?

Love of mine, some day you will die

But I’ll be close behind

I’ll follow you into the dark

No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white

Just our hands clasped so tight

Waiting for the hint of a spark

If Heaven and Hell decide

That they both are satisfied Illuminate the no’s on their vacancy signs

If there’s no one beside you

When your soul embarks

Then I’ll follow you into the dark

In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule

I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black

And I held my tongue as she told me “Son fear is the heart of love”

So I never went back

If Heaven and Hell decide

That they both are satisfied

Illuminate the no’s on their vacancy signs

If there’s no one beside you

When your soul embarks

Then I’ll follow you into the dark

You and me have seen everything to see

From Bangkok to Calgary

And the soles of your shoes

Are all worn down

The time for sleep is now

It’s nothing to cry about

‘Cause we’ll hold each other soon

In the blackest of rooms

If Heaven and Hell decide

That they both are satisfied

Illuminate the no’s on their vacancy signs

If there’s no one beside you

When your soul embarks

Then I’ll follow you into the dark

Then I’ll follow you into the dark

  1. i guess this is the time no matter what beliefs you have you cling to the belief and faith that your love one has gone on to wait for you in a better place free of pain and the misery of this world until you meet again, and I am sure on Meggie’s special day your cousin will stand side by side of all the other family who have passed and watch her with as much pride as you have for her xxx

    • I believe that is very true Paula. I know that he will be there with us. We’ll be sure to say a prayer and scatter some flowers into the ocean for him too. I told Meg today that I’m just miserable right now. She understood completely. We know that when her special day comes, there will be so much joy. Warm sun, and sand beneath our feet. As we hear the roar of the ocean and she and Chris pledge to love each other forever. It’ll be a beautiful day. Thanks for your sweet words honey.

  2. Remember your cousin as she was; not as she is and love the time you had more than trying to cling to what could have been. Her passing is sad, but you have a new beginning facing you as well. Such is the circle of life. Live well, love long and deeply and cherish your time together while you can. Here’s wishing you and those you hold dear the very best life has to offer.
