Yesterday.

This is my song, not rhyming but from my hearth. Hope you enjoy. I wrote it and play it with my friends

Yesterday.
Stoken bij Geert (Stefan Rutten)

When the moon shines from the heaven,
And the sun is in your hearth,
When you gaze over a patch of grass,
Or the beach for a start.
The feeling of something missing,
A form of jealousy and sorrow combined.
And you know that there’s someone out there. Forgetting You.

It should be sunny and warm,
With the smell of fresh grass and pretty barefoot girls.
But I’m straying off again.

Memories are birds, hovering on the air,
Warm or cold, it doesn’t really matter.
You gain sadness and joy, treasured wit others,
Hopefully plenty of times re-used.
Yearning for the days you were together,
With that one person that really mattered.
Who later on made your lust of life disappear.

It should be warm and late,
With leaves of red and girls with woollen scarves.
But I’m straying off again.

Friends with whom you spend everyday as your last,
Lying in the grass oblivious of harm.
Outside beers, inside beers, celebration beers, it connects.
People you turn to when in need, they’re there for you.
Friends for life or for a short time,
Whenever, love for your life, life as a lust.

It should be cold and white,
With red cheeks which sting in the wind.
But I’m straying off again.

Searching for people who make you taste of joy and happiness,
Music as your safe haven in times of sorrow.
Cold and blue without others in front of the fireplace,
Almost Christmas, new year wishes and expectations you abandoned.
You want to live again, walk around on flip flops, that was nice.
A new year started, new days, new chances, a new chorus line.

It should be green,
With pink flowers who smell like apples on fresh dew.
I think I’m going to stray off.

Thank you very much. But for the writing I'm still looking towards Joseph Campbell. He is the true writer. I only express my feelings with my music

For once, I dont really NEED to have someone to comment on my work. It's just that I have a place to put these emotions. And if people want to share these things with me they are most welcome, if not. No biggy

In the case Joseph is here, any comments about the above written matter?
