Viikonloppu, vihdoinkin!


Viikko on menty aikamoista haipakkaa eikä nytkään ole aikaa pysähtyä pidemmäksi aikaa. Hustvedtin The Summer without Men on luettu mielenkiinnolla ja ilolla loppuun. Aihepiiri sivuaakin juuri sopivasti edellistä, eli naisten ja miesten eroja ja yhtäläisyyksiä lukemisessa ja kirjoittamisessa ja muussakin. Siitä lisää seuraavassa postauksessa. Sinisen linnan kirjastossa on muuten parhaillaan käynnissä samanlainen tekstinäytteiden sukupuolitesti (kuulostaapas jotenkin irvokkaalta!), jonne löytää tuolta Blogs I like –osiosta. 

Nyt kuitenkin toivottelen oikein kivaa viikonloppua kaikille Yamatji-runoilijan, Jerry Maherin värssyin ystävyydestä.


Smiling with a Heavy Heart

Hey my friend gotta moment
I don’t want to sound like I’m blue
It’s been an interesting journey
That I enjoyed mostly with you

I remember how scared I was of flying
How I used to look at you
Maybe I should have showed I wasn’t scared at all
But if I did I would look like a fool

I smiled even though I was hurting
I laughed even when I was blue
But even with a heavy broken heart
I always felt very close to you

Your words and advice I took on board
Alas at times I couldn’t set them right
But how do you think with a heavy heart
When you know that all is not right

I will carry those memories forever
The fun and good times we shared
The laughter and jokes and tears that fell
Were from a good friend’s heavy heart

Be happy and smile when you read this
It’s not meant to make you feel sad
I just wanted to share a moment
With the best friend I ever had.



Whisper to Me Gently

Some days I feel kinda tired and sleepy
Then some days I feel kinda flat and weepy
Then gentle words are whispered to me
Oh boy I feel alive and free

You came into my life when I was down
Then you lifted me and you bought me around
With those sweet whispered words you would always say
They lifted me from day to day

I now look forward instead of looking back
It’s you I know that put me on track
You never gave in you made me feel
That I am worth it it’s true it’s real

Your whispered words are true my friend
I know I feel it and I will never give in
If it weren’t for you and your whispers in kind
Those whispered words to me would have been blind
