Somebody Closer.....

I wrote most of these lyrics last year, and have always wanted to finish the piece.  Interestingly, I tried on several occasions to get it right.  But, the circumstances and my headspace would allow for it.  Until now.  
You know, I think we all have a yearning kind of love song inside our souls..... maybe even more than one.  we'll see.  

My Somebody Closer

Just poured a second cup of coffee,
Waiting for the dawn
I'm filled with haunting memories
In the body of our song
Of a day so long forgotten
In the rippling of the years
I'm lost in your soft expression
Trying to hold back my tears.
______
Can you be my somebody closer
Instead of a figment in my dreams
Or will you haunt my waking everyday
Your laughing eyes unseen
I want to live out our memories
Our love captured in the breeze
This is my early morning yearning
Please set my heart at ease.
________
We walked away in silence
too young to see ahead
No fairy tale ending binds us
Our separate ways instead
Yet through the fog of lonely
I see your shadow on my soul
I'm aching for your fingers touch
Your roughworn hand to hold.
______
Can you be my somebody closer
Instead of a figment in my dreams
Or will you haunt my waking everyday
Your laughing eyes unseen
I want to live out our memories
Our love captured in the breeze
This is my early morning yearning
Please set my heart at ease. 
_______
On days when I am busy
On days when peace alights
I feel a stirring you're still near me
Like you're just within my sights
Then, I look up and all around me
Your real presence isn't true
Our lives unfolded separately 
Yet my heart's still yearns for you.

Just wonder how the tune would go. Have you set it to music yet? Do you sing as well. A video would be swell :)

Hope you have been well dear Dana.

Joy and peace,
Susan

Susan...in my mind, it sounds a bit folky/country. I havent set it to music yet. I'd sing it if someone could do that.
I throw it out to the universe and hope that someone will find the tune to it. Daisy, did you try a while back with this one? Skagg?

ps. I'm doing much better. I'm hoping to write more this weekend. It's been a very busy time. More "ups" than "downs" these days. The shock has lifted and there are different feelings around me now. Thank you for asking

Oh, yes. I really like it. I am sure it would work as a song. Any composers out there? Come on and give it a go!
