Wish you were here

I'm posting this kinda old illustration, as a tribute to a beloved relative who left us two weeks ago.


Rescato una ilustración de hace algún tiempo, para homenajear a una persona muy querida que nos dejó hace dos semanas. 

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts? 
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground. 
What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Se te echaba de verdad...espero que estés bien...las pérdidas siempre son duras y las palabras no suelen ayudar....
Espero que el verano esté lleno de música, playa y proyectos...aunque sea en ese segundo plano.
Animo. Besos
