It's all about me.
The song kind of expresses an understanding of a grieving person. My mom died in August of the same year and in September when the tragedy happened I realized that the pain of other people must have been several times more than of mine. My mom had a stroke and died of Cardiac Arrest but those who died in 9/11 were all healthy and fit.
Munir, I think that grief is grief- no matter how the death happened. It all hurts. One of my cousins was murdered years ago and I felt the same as when family has died from a lingering illness.
Thanks Ruth for sharing Peter Gabriel's song, Grieve, with us. Brings back memories.Your line "everything seems the same and yet, it is not" sums it up beautifully. It is those left behind that must carry on - and carry with them the grief and sadness.Jenny @ PEARSON REPORT
Jenny, whenever someone I love dies, I play this. It makes me feel better in an odd sort of way.
Jenny, I just realized I left the g off everything!
Perfectly sad, and perfectly worded.
D.J., true. He put into words something that is so hard to.
I'd never heard this before. Thanks for sharing it, Ruth. It's the perfect song about grief, very powerful.xoRobyn
Robyn, I first heard it when my husband bought me the City of Angels soundtrack for another song that I wanted. I am glad you like it.
Yes you are right, it is a sad song ...
Beautiful, beautiful song. Nothing more to be said (I know. Surprised, right?)
No, it does not, Al. You know something good when you see it.By all the responses to your Garfield, I feel odd cause I actually thought of the president first.
Thatta girl! Or thatta woman!!
Hauntingly beautiful and emotional song. I have not heard it before so thank you for sharing it
Mynx, it is one of my favorites. I am glad you enjoyed it.
