Silver, Blue And Gold

In the beginning, I believed every word that you said,
Now that you’re gone my world is in shreds
Oh, you loved me and left me,
You took all the things that I needed so bad,
I’m standing here wondering where is the love that I had?
Oh, give me silver, blue and gold,
The colour of the sky I’m told,
My ray-ay-ain-bow is overdue

In the beginning, yeah,
There was something of love that was mine,
Now that it’s gone, whoa, I’m cryin’

Oh, the time that it takes for a love to grow cold is a wonder to me,
I’m walkin’ around with my head hangin’ down
Tell me where is she?

Give me silver, blue and gold,
The colour of the sky I’m told,
My ray-ay-ain-bow is overdue

Don’t forsake me ’cause I love you
Don’t forsake me ’cause I love you
Give me silver, blue and gold,
The colour of the sky I’m told
My ray-ay-ain-bow is overdue

Give me silver, blue and gold,
The colour of the sky I’m told
My ray-ay-ain-bow is overdue
Now, give me silver, blue and gold,
The colour of the sky I’m told
My ray-ay-ain-bow is overdue, yeah

Oh, don’t forsake me ’cause I love you
Don’t forsake me ’cause I love you, yeah

Silver, Blue And Gold – Bad Company

In life there are so many ups and downs, so many times of pain and sorrow interspersed with times of unimaginable joy that one can become confused or indeterminate in which view is the true course to follow.  Confusion sets in and we struggle with feelings of inadequacy and a helpless abandon that leads to giving up and following the easy path. This I will not allow to overcome my sense of what is right and what is the true goal of my life, and that is My ray-ay-ain-bow is overdue.

I believe life is what you make of it and you must take personal responsibility for what happens to you. You are the guide, you are the person that sheds the light on the road you follow to the rainbow of your future. Yes, many things can happen that are out of your control but the the spirit within, the inner persona that is you controls how you respond to each trial that befalls you. Only you can control how you live your life.

Every day can be a life filled with silver blue and gold if you wish, every day can be lived in he pursuit of what makes you feel fulfilled and content. If you feel sad and dejected, lost in a sea of discontent, only you can change the coarse of your existence and achieve what brings you happiness. But first you have to decide what it is makes you truly happy. I have done this and my love that was mine is all around me.

The colour of the sky is waiting for me in my future on the sea, every morning a chance at redemption in the eyes of those who behold each sunrise as a moment of a new beginning, a chance to make a change in ones life for the better. I see a future filled with hope and harmony, at one with nature and all that is perfect in it’s simplicity.

Now Give me silver, blue and gold,
The colour of the sky I’m told
My ray-ay-ain-bow is overdue!

  1. I recently met a fellow diagnosed with Parkinson’s whose wife struggled for some while with the news and the implications of what will follow. Then last year, she decided one day that she was going to be happy. It took her 6 months of soul searching, understanding what makes her happy and what really doesn’t, embracing the bits she wants and brushing by the bits she doesn’t and counting her blessings before sleep every night and refusing to dwell on the bumps and humps and potholes and irritations. She is now happy. And so is he because he doesn’t feel he is a burden but rather the man she always loved, will always love …. you, my dear friend, are an inspiration to any that choose to read your words. Thank you.

    1. I think I write to motivate myself into not giving up as I have done in the past, but it’s nice to know I may in some small way help others. Thanks friend.
