A Midsummer Night's Tears...

I never dreamed you'd leave in Summer
I thought you would go then come back home
I thought the cold would leave by Summer
But my quiet nights will be spent alone...

You said there would be warm love in Springtime
That is when you started to be cold
I never dreamed you'd leave in Summer
But now I find myself all alone...

You said then you'd be the life in Autumn
Said you'd be the one to see the way
You know I never dreamed you'd leave in Summer
But now I find my love has gone away

Why didn't you stay?



Woke up to my alarm at 2:30am last night, sat infront of the TV for the next 3hrs watching the most touching memorial my spirit has ever known. I just choked up with tears at this particular song by Stevie Wonder - Never Dreamed You'd Leave in Summer...the song has an amazing touch that grips your soul and leaves you feeling every emotion in it. I was just bawling my eyes out til dawn. Paris Jackson you spoke very little my dear, but you spoke volumes for the world to know what a wonderful man your dad was.

For someone to touch so many hearts in every corner of the world and across all cultures , to break all barriers, to create such a massive emotional outburst, to stop the world and leave it feeling so very empty, to create such a hype, a man has to be very very special. Amen.



I never dreamed you'd leave in Summer... ... ...why didn't you stay?

Tarun said...

Lets celebrate his life rather than mourn his death.

vishesh said...

it was inspiring to see so many people talking about one person...all we can do is try to heal the world

♥ÐÅyÐяєÅмє®♥ said...

I agree the two sentences Paris spoke was jus like an epic and it broke me in tears too....

I hope MJ gets Peace soon....

and that song was indeed touching...so was 'make the world a better place'....

God bless MJ and give peace to the family...

Ria said...

Another soul consumed by history! RIP MJ

Devika said...

People will come, people will go...it all shall pass...what stays is just memories and our love...but we too shall pass some day,

I can estimate your sense of loss, Keshi....don't be ever so attached...practice detachment as you love deeply,

wishes,
devika

i have no words to say....

Priya Joyce said...

ahh!...I watched that too..it was very touching..at times like this tears just don't stop..or rather we just dun wanna stop it.

Dunno whether that wud be a right statement...but time heals..but he'd always be a sweet memory in many hearts..even in the midst of everything.

You said it!

Paris Jackson did speak little but it was so overwhelming to see a 11 yr old meet eyes with thousands there & speak about her father , the one who is a legend to all the others.

All his kids are so lovely :)

The Phosgene Kid said...

Here summer is too damn hot, a lot of people leave until things cool off in October or November. 114 yesterday!!

May his soul rest in peace !!

Amen..

KK said...

The Rat... said...

Hugzzz Keshi...

Jeevan said...

Hi Keshi

I managed not to cry until Paris spoke. She said more in a few words, than was said through the whole memorial.

It took a child to sum up what life is truly about.

I have have a post up now as my final tribute to MJ. It will be my last words on the subject. I'm must move on.

krystyna said...

I was watching too and I'm still watching.
Somebody said -
"God wanted Michael more".


Thank you Keshi for this post!

Hugsss

Gigi said...

Great post Keshi. I still think of sudden death of MJ as a joke or like a dream.

Beach Bum said...

Tarun is right, the time for mourning is over. Michael should be celebrated for his works with us taking up the causes he worked for.

SMM said...

IMHO, the sweet little words of a little girl missing her daddy said it the best

Anamika. said...

Oh! You have no idea how much it killed me. It killed me when paris spoke up. It killed me when his family member sang ''smile even tho' your heart is achin''. It killed me every moment thinking : is he really gone?!

I was watching his documentary the pr-disaster and OMG! I had tears in my eyes. Even the ones who hate will change their opinion. He was an excellent human being [so calm and peaceful]. He had the voice of a child. He was an amazing father! He loved his children and the kids [I want to slap the people who think it otherwise]

When the interviewer asked him : if he wanted to be buried in a golden coffin, when michael was looking at one in a store in Vegas, he replied : he would like to ''live'' forever.

Oh, the irony that after 6 years he started living forever. :)

I love MJ! No words or emotions can bring him back but his songs have engraved his image onto my heart.

I miss him. I really do..

tulipspeaks said...

we are still grieving for the King :(


ammu.

Fiducia said...

let's keep his legacy and music alive dear..
mourning will make him disappointed with his fans...:(

Live on MJ!

Phoenix said...

i never really grew up with MJ's songs... i never really was his ardent fans...but i admired him for who he was and what he stood for... and his memorial was really touched and it moved me to tears... :(

Lost Mermaid said...

These are really wonderful words .. touched me !

ZiLliOnBiG said...

awwwwwaa, so touchy post. I pray to god that he gives you enough strength to continue your life, after such a terrible lose.

But on a serious note, get over it, will you!!!!! and comeup with a nice Keshi Style post, enough of MJ and emotions. Dont make him look down from there and curse you. He would like to read a good blog post from you.( hope you wont take it anyother way, was just kidding) :)))

Mysterious Mia said...

hey babes havent seen the memorial yet but am gonna check it out on youtube right away.....

comfortably numb said...

and the great thing was every time one of them recited one of those stories or instances of MJ it all washed up again...the tears in the eyes n the smiles on the lips:(

Jack said...

Keshi,

It is time now to spread his way of making people happy, that is by his music.

Take care

freudian slip said...

it took an eleven year old girl to show the world what he really was and children never lie

Suresh Kumar said...

Thats a nice poem by stevie wonder... Captures the feelings aptly...

Got a chance to listen to his old songs. My partner also seems to be affected by the sorrow...

V. Archana said...

may mj's soul rest in peace..

NE~ISM said...

Micheal's memorial was nothing short of amazing. I loved every tear that fell down my face.. He is someone that knocked down so many barriers that the world had up!!

He gave all he could give and then still gave more..

He will always be remembered!

Tarun said...

Where shalt thou be?

Well to simply put it ...

Reasons to frown are many.
reasons to smile are few.

tears and smiles are equally infectious. :)
*Smile* flashes a light bulb

Pooja said...

RIP MJ!!!
