In Your Eyes

For Klaus... love Lulu

"In Your Eyes" Peter Gabriel

love I get so lost, sometimes
days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
when I want to run away
I drive off in my car
but whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

all my instincts, they return
the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway of a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
the heat I see in your eyes

love, I don't like to see so much pain
so much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired, working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

and all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway of a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
the heat I see in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes

Beautiful sentiments for Klaus.

I thought about the Sullivan Ballou letter when I read of Klaus' passing and of your intense love for him:
If the dead can come back to this earth and flit unseen around those they loved, I shall always be near you; in the gladdest days and in the darkest nights . . . always, always, and if there be a soft breeze upon your cheek, it shall be my breath, as the cool air fans your throbbing temple, it shall be my spirit passing by. Sarah do not mourn me dead; think I am gone and wait for thee, for we shall meet again . . .

Full letter is here:

You continue to be in my thoughts.

Deetz said...

This won't be easy to do...but close your eyes and imagine my big ears, innocent eyes, button nose and furry paws resting softly on your lap...If I could be there, that is what I would do for you!
I would comfort Bogart too, for he means so much to me....If I could leak all your tears for you...I would. I am with you in your heart, I know it is safe there.

Sad woos, the OP Pack

Daniella said...

Can't get you all out of my mind. You are in our thoughts and prayers constantly. I think we all imagine ourselves in your place Lulu and it fills us all with deep sorrow for what you are going through. I hope you are okay. You have huge support around the world..I hope that helps, if even a wee bit.

Please look after yourself, eat, rest etc..

Best,
Dani and Ax

Oh, Lulu. so beautiful. Though it was shorter than you wanted(I guess we never have enough time) I envy you the love you and Klaus had(and have-it lives on and never dies). We continue to hold you in our hearts and though we wish we could make it better, we know this is your road to walk. Grief is a tunnel closed at the opening. There is an end that is open where the light shines again, but you walk it alone and at your own pace.
God Bless you
Hugs
Jamie and Scooter&Sunny

Lulu, Bogart & Kitties. It's so extraordinary that you have opened up your life this way to your blog friends, old and new. I don't know if you're even aware how much you have touched our hearts, even though we have only known you for a short time.

There are so many of us circling around you, hoping to be a continual source of comfort to you in the coming weeks and months. We will all be right here, cheering you onward, always.

Toffee said...

Lulu & Bogart -

Yesterday when I found out your sad news some of the lyrics of the following song popped in my head. I wanted to share...

The song is "Angel" by Sarah McLaughlin

Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
For the break that will make it OK
There's always some reason to feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction or a beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
Let me be empty and weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the Angel far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the Angel; may you find some comfort here

...we are here for you...never forget this...
much love,
toffee & mom

Ike said...

I'm glad you are finding some comfort.
I'm still thinking about you.
Ike

Rudy said...

Dear Lulu

This was such a beautiful post.

I have been thinking of you so much.

I don't seem to have enough words or the right words to comment today.....

I am typing this at 7 am on a very snowy and cold morning in Scotland and my tears are falling for you.

And Bogart.

Much love from Jeannie xx Marvin xx

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

LuLu and Bogart I am so sorry that I haven't been around lately. I just heard about all that is going on and I'm so sorry for your loss.

Please know that if you need anything, just bark or send an email - the human will respond ASAP!! I will ensure that. When we say anything, we mean anything - you don't want to go to the store to get dog food? No problem the human will have some mailed to your house...

We have you in our thoughts - hold on to Bogart tight, the furry guys are great therapy.

We mean it...anything

Slurp!
Amy and Mr. T-Bone Beasley

Joey said...

Back in December, you included a picture of Joe Biden and his cute German Shepherd puppy on your blog. We didn't see it anywhere else. Because of that picture, I now have an almost 4-month old monkey boy brother who posts on weekends and holidays. So I wanted to say thank you. And again, I'm so sorry for your loss.

Your pal,
Joey

Bonnie said...

Dear Lulu and Bogart and Cats,

I've been thinking about you and Klaus a lot. It is a remarkable love you share. Klaus had such a joie de vivre. His life was short, too short, but so filled with life. He was expert at tasting life. Some people just go through the motions and don't really experience it, but you sure couldn't say that about Klaus. Hold on to those memories of individual moments, Lulu, as I know you will. Taste life, with the appetite of Klaus.

Bonnie (Keeley's Grandma)

What a great tribute to your love. Our hearts go out to you and yours.

Your pal, morgan

OhMy said...

Lulu, Bogie, & Kitty's,

I have often wondered why things happened the way they do, and on occasion I can reconcile some of the past with the future. I really owe you so much since your effort to create the Bogart Handsome Devil website and blog were the only source of information I could find when I needed to get answers to my Airehead Terror questions. Bogie and Cisco are only months apart.

While the pain is still sharp as a knife right now, hopefully, due to your unselfishness and effort to communicate and share your experiences with everyone you will find some comfort in the immense support you are getting which is actually the fruit of your efforts.

Day by day, you will feel again. Differently, but you will feel again. Keep writing and reaching out and we will keep writing and reaching out back to you.

Love & Many Thanks to you & Bogie,
Cisco Kid Ochoa's mom

Life with Ozzy said...

Lulu and Bogart,
Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. During this god awful time nothing anything of us can say or do will ever replace the love you have lost. But please know he's still there with you that love is not gone not really. If you ever need to talk to someone who knows what you are going through drop a line on Ozzy's blog. Boggie and the cats are your best medicine and know it will get easier. Just hold on to his love and to those memories they will sustain more than you will ever realize.
Love,
Jen & Ozzy

Bijou said...

We did not know Klaus but he must have been a great man for so many people to love him as they do.

Sorry for his passing.
