Sigh: The last goodbye

   
The last goodbye - Billy Boyd 🎢



This is the song that concludes the trilogy of The Hobbit, filmed by Peter Jackson. To me it is even more than that. It is the perfect goodbye to both The Lord of the Rings as well as The Hobbit. What a magnificent journey the actors, producers and all others on the set have taken in participating in filming the mighty fantasy world created by Tolkien. It truly must have been a bit sad having to say goodbye to their characters, the world they were creating and to each-other. This was an epic undertaking and one I can imagine they will never forget.


Lyrics:

I saw the light fade from the sky
On the wind I hear a sigh
As the snowflakes cover my fallen brothers
I will say this last goodbye

Night is now falling
So end this day
The road is now calling
And I must away
Over hill and under tree
Through lands where never light has shone
By silver streams that run down to the sea

Under cloud, beneath the stars
Over snow one winter's morn
I turn at last on paths that lead home
And though where the road then takes me
I cannot tell
We came all this way
But now comes the day
To bid you farewell

Many places I have been
Many sorrows I have seen
But I don't regret
Nor will I forget
All who took the road with me

Night is now falling
So end this day
The road is now calling
And I must away
Over hill and under tree
Through lands where never light has shone
By silver streams that run down to the sea

To these memories I will hold
With your blessing I will go
I turn at last on paths that lead home
And though where the road then takes me
I cannot tell
We came all this way
But now comes the day
To bid you farewell

I bid you all a very fond farewell

Dryad

high up on the hill
young dryad stands alone
white flowers at her roots
as beautiful but still

she's yearning to be free
to walk the earth like others
to take part in the magic
with her sisters and brothers

the art of transformation
is all she has to learn
to turn into an woman
'till then she'll be half tree


A sad song: Streets of Philadelphia

Streets of Philadelphia - Bruce Springsteen 🎢


This is a song that for me is not only linked with the movie Philadelphia. It is also linked with the feeling of being lost, feeling like you are almost invisible, like you do not matter at all to anyone, especially to you yourself. That's why for me this song is so very sad, but strangely enough it also gives me strength, even hope. At the times when I feel lost and very negative about myself, it makes reflect on what I do have, a home, loved ones, security, a future. And even if I can't touch any positive feelings at that moment, I can keep holding on to the knowledge that I do have those things, I just need to find my way back out of the black cloud that surrounds me. This song makes me cry, but that's okay. Those are tears I need to shed anyway to resurface again. 

Lyrics:

I was bruised and battered, I couldn't tell what I felt.
I was unrecognizable to myself.
Saw my reflection in a window and didn't know my own face…

Vlucht in fantasie

deze stilte wrikt
wreekt
mijn huid stuk als glas geslagen scherven scherp
dodelijk
hier ~ snij de levenslijn in mijn palm bloedeloos bleek
maar schrij niet om mij ~ lach
ik ben twee zonnen aan de hemel ~ heel intens
geluidloos doch
zwijgend hoor ik je zuchten
in rood gekleurde luchten sein jij mij met witte vlag
echter ik dwaal af en nimmer neer
ik vlucht
in fantasie
