MY PIECE OF HEAVEN

A Birthday Sonnet For My Love

Another year has passed for you, sweetheart;
It’s time to cut the cake and celebrate.
And once again, my love, I start to think
Of things about you I appreciate.

It means so much to have you in my life;
Your loving care fills up my days with pleasure.
Your warm and giving nature helps create
Close, special times together that I treasure.

I live within a safe and steady world,
Because you love me unconditionally.
Your easygoing ways mean that I’m blessed
With peace and joy and blissful harmony.

To me your birthday is a precious day;
I hope it brings you joy in every way.

For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

MADE IN PUERTO RICO

A love poem dedicated to my country, Puerto Rico

I sing the blues as I refuse
to accept your demise,
thinking instead my country is
in a dormant state soon to awaken,
at the rooster’s call as always,
refreshed and spirited.
I speak of my Puerto Rico,
my love, my origin of being,
the source of memory and dreams
and all matter of things.
These words might be deemed
clichés were they not true —
true to my soul and marrow.

I sing the blues as I refuse
to accept you’ve gone too far
from home to find your way back.
My country, my island, my barrio
will return to her rightful place,
and call out for her children
spread thin throughout stranger’s lands.

I sing the blues as I refuse
to accept words which attribute
my intellect or beauty to another race
and remind you I am not up for adoption.
This self originated and renews itself,
despite travel to faraway places
and educations in Spanish and English
and diasporic fragmentation,
from one source —
the country of my origin from which
genius and virtuosity was born before.
You say I look, seem, could be, speak as though and
I say no, I could not be anything but
Puerto Rican.

To start the day …. when I’m 64!!


64Beat

~~July 1, 2014~~

Several moons ago, I arrived on this planet through the grace of my parents, Hortensia Rexach and Jose F. Rexach. They had me in their 40s. They raised me to be the best that I could be. They gave me all that I needed to be happy, educated, successful, integrated, complete and realized.

Thanks to them I’m here to celebrate another year in my life. 

Beat5

I remember when The Beatles burst into the music scene and slowly became worldwide known. As their career grew and eventually changed, so did the style of their songs. They grew with the times … the 60s and 70s. 

I remember so clear when this song came out … I knew the lyrics and wondered how it would feel “when I’m 64”! 

~~NOW I KNOW~~ 

Beat4

When I’m Sixty-Four” is a song by the Beatles, written by Paul McCartney (credited to Lennon–McCartney) and released in 1967 on their album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

(LOVE THIS ALBUM)

~~Composition~~

The song is sung by a young man to his lover, and is about his plans of growing old together with her. Although the theme is ageing, it was one of the first songs McCartney wrote, when he was only 16. It was on the Beatles playlist in their early days as a song to perform when the amplifiers broke down or the electricity went off. Both George Martin and Mark Lewisohn speculated that McCartney may have thought of the song when recording began for Sgt. Pepper in December 1966 because his father turned 64 earlier that year.

Lennon said of the song, “Paul wrote it in the Cavern days. We just stuck a few more words on it like ‘grandchildren on your knee’ and ‘Vera, Chuck and Dave’ … this was just one that was quite a hit with us.” In his 1980 interview for Playboy he said, “I would never even dream of writing a song like that.”

~~LYRICS~~

When I get older losing my hair,
Many years from now,
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Birthday greetings bottle of wine?

If I’d been out till quarter to three
Would you lock the door,
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I’m sixty-four?

oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oooo
You’ll be older too, (ah ah ah ah ah)
And if you say the word,
I could stay with you.

I could be handy mending a fuse
When your lights have gone.
You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday mornings go for a ride.

Doing the garden, digging the weeds,
Who could ask for more?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I’m sixty-four?

Every summer we can rent a cottage
In the Isle of Wight, if it’s not too dear
We shall scrimp and save
Grandchildren on your knee
Vera, Chuck, and Dave

Send me a postcard, drop me a line,
Stating point of view.
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
Yours sincerely, Wasting Away.

Give me your answer, fill in a form
Mine for evermore
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I’m sixty-four?

Whoo!
