I long for him
    #3564543 - 12/31/04 10:07 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

This may be weird to some of you here seeing as I never saw him play. Well actually let me start at the beginning ....


Ok so I was chatting away with one of my really good friends acquired here at the Shroomery. He says I long for Jerry Garcia. Instantly I knew what he meant. I never saw him play. He is also the only man my mother has ever cried over. When I was younger, I had just turned 11 I came in a saw my mother crying by her bed. When asked what was wrong she said a great man had just dies. When asking about this man she played a song for me of his. I long for him because he was such a great man. He brought a whole new meaning to the word Guitarist. If there was any one person in the world I could wish life back into it would be Mr. Garcia. I want so badly to hear him play, meet him, or simply just know that a new generation of people may get to hear him sing and play once again. Alas this will never happen though. I wouldn't even wish life back into any single one of my dead family members because they have never moved me like his songs, with the exception of my grandaddy, and he's still alive. Anyway I am typing from my heart due to a wake and bake so you guy may think I'm crazy but I truly feel this way deep in my heart.

~~Jetta


By The Way no saying I am gay. I am secure in my masculinity 100%. That's why I could say I long for him comfortably.

Tight is not nearly a strong enough word more like Simply Amazing, or Hell I can't eve nthink of a good enough word. He is one of the greates men in the world, and will remain to be in my book, and the book of every other true dead head in the world, and damn it our books are the onlyh ones that count.

Remember he was just a man like you and me. Only Awsome-er.

"and the book of every other true dead head in the world"

read Living with the Dead. It is one of my favorite books of all time. It was written by there longtime manager, who lived with them for a period. Lots of great stories.

Look out of any window
any morning, any evening, any day
Maybe the sun is shining
birds are winging or
rain is falling from a heavy sky -
What do you want me to do,
to do for you to see you through?
this is all a dream we dreamed
one afternoon long ago
Walk out of any doorway
feel your way, feel your way
like the day before
Maybe you'll find direction
around some corner
where it's been waiting to meet you -
What do you want me to do,
to watch for you while you're sleeping?
Well please don't be surprised
when you find me dreaming too

Look into any eyes
you find by you, you can see
clear through to another day
I know it's been seen before
through other eyes on other days
while going home --
What do you want me to do,
to do for you to see you through?
It's all a dream we dreamed
one afternoon long ago

Walk into splintered sunlight
Inch your way through dead dreams
to another land
Maybe you're tired and broken
Your tongue is twisted
with words half spoken
and thoughts unclear
What do you want me to do
to do for you to see you through
A box of rain will ease the pain
and love will see you through

Just a box of rain -
wind and water -
Believe it if you need it,
if you don't just pass it on
Sun and shower -
Wind and rain -
in and out the window
like a moth before a flame

It's just a box of rain
I don't know who put it there
Believe it if you need it
or leave it if you dare
But it's just a box of rain
or a ribbon for your hair
Such a long long time to be gone
and a short time to be there

One thing I liked so much about him was the way he viewed things, the way he could make you realize what makes you feel sad about in life, and leave you smiling and happy about it like it's really ok
Plus, he could actually put this kinda stuff to words (describing the deads aura)

shine on brothers and sisters

:peace:

Its the only way it could have been. Things pass. Everything changes.
Detatch yourself and you might find yourself content with the reality.
Jerrys gone.
