Just Before It Gets Dark

Here I stand, at the edge of the cliff. The ground between my toes starts crumbling. I want to step back but I am frozen. I am frozen with the thought of do I fall screaming and fighting or do I open my eyes to see what happens once I start to fall. Major Tom to Ground Control, my circuits dead, there's something wrong. Can you hear me Ground Control? I swop the words around hoping someone would notice.

This Monday started very blue for me but by afternoon some promise for the week started to show itself. A big thanks needs to go to Petra, for at a drop of a hat, fixed my suit pants. This song by Emmylou Harris just sums up my day as I sit on my porch with a beer in my hand watching the sun go down.

Just before it gets dark
When the light still hangs in the sky
The day's not quite gone
All its promises still in your eyes

Between the time your mother calls
And the time you put the ball away
There's a lifetime to be lived
And a world where every dream is here to stay

Just before the night comes
And you run back to the safety of your world
Just before it gets dark
You can believe in every story ever told

In those last precious moments
There's a beauty no one wants to give away
Well nothing lasts forever
But those moments keep forever far away

Just before it gets dark
Before you grow, before you're too old to pretend
Just before it gets dark
And you know your dreams will not come back again

Hold on
Hold on tight

And I promise you baby
It'll all be alright
I promise you baby
It'll all be alright
