                                                                             Heath
 
                                                                       Soft, your name,
                                                                       It's like a breath,
                                                                      Respired, as a sigh
                                                                          ...Heath...
                                                                    Soft, and also ageless,
                                                                  A moor of untamed thyme
                                                                And flowering, purple heather
                                                                   Blooming sweet and free.

                                                                     Precious, is the name
                                                                      Of he who wore it
                                                                          Like a glove
                                                                           ...Heath...
                                                                   It seems to whisper airily,
                                                                  It seems to speak to love
                                                                 In a timbre of wild heather,
                                                                      Blowing in the wind

                                                                       Stately, is your name,
                                                                       A manor on the heath.
                                                                A sound so soft yet full of might,
                                                                            ...Heath...
                                                                It haunts my Wuthering Heights
                                                                And the vastness of the heather
                                                                     Growing with the thyme.

Beautiful poem,Laura¡ It's wonderful as his name and the feelings he awakes in us...Heath... :\'(

Jack smiled sad. “Yeah, Ennis. Love.” Leaned forward and kissed Ennis’s temple, whispered, “What’d you think it was, all this time?”

Thanks guys, you're all sweet.   ^f^

Just a quick note about my Heath poem.  Thought I'd mention something about the significance of heather and thyme in the poem.  A friend of mine that visited yesterday read it and inquired as to why I'd included them.  Heather, I guess I just added, as it grows in the moorlands, and the name Heath is also supposedly derived from it.  Thyme is also found on the moors and heaths, but I included it as a reference to Heath playing a knight in AKT, since in medieval times, knights were given thyme before going to battle, to give them extra courage.  In the past it was also used funereally, placed on the coffin to help with the passage to the afterlife.  I suppose I was wanting to gift some metaphorical thyme to our beloved Heath.

Wonderful your explanation and the symbolism of your poem,Laura¡ :clap: Yes,Heath deserves to be given some thyme because he was a knight who fought against injustices with his work and his position in life;and because he was a heartrobber too for his sweetness,beauty and tenderness about his family,friends and everybody who loved him. <^(

During my lunch break today, I got to fixating on the beautiful sound of Heath's name...and felt compelled to write something for the name that means "vast, open moor" and has such a beautiful respiratory quality to it.



                                                                                     
                                                                             Heath
 
                                                                       Soft, your name,
                                                                       It's like a breath,
                                                                      Respired, as a sigh
                                                                          ...Heath...
                                                                    Soft, and also ageless,

Watch over you
(Alter Bridge)

Leaves are on the ground
Fall has come
Blue skies turning grey
Like my love
I try to carry you
And make you whole
But it was never enough
I must go

And who is gonna save you when I'm gone?
And who'll watch over you
When I'm gone?

You say you care for me
But hide it well
How can you love someone not yourself?

And who is gonna save you when I'm gone?
And who'll watch over you
When I'm gone?

And when I'm gone who will break your fall?
Who will you blame?
I can't go on let you loose it all It’s more then I can take
Who'll ease your pain?
Ease your pain

And who is gonna save you when I'm gone?
And who'll watch over you?
And I will give you strength when you’re not strong?
Who'll watch over you when I've gone away?

Snow is on the ground
Winter's come
You long to hear my voice
But I'm long gone
As the moon lingers a moment over the bitterroots, before its descent into the invisible, my mind is filled with song. I find I am humming softly, not to the music, but something else, some place else, a place remembered; a field of grass where no one seemed to have been except a deer, and the memory is strengthened by the feeling of you, dancing in my awkward arms.............

Tonight I called out your name
The thought of you
Was carried on the wind
And it echoed through the canyon like a train
Winding on home to me again
I can almost touch your face
It`s almost like your never went away

Heath,
Everywhere I go
I can feel you all around me
In the sunrise, in the moonlight
I breathe you in like the air
You`re everywhere

I walked through the forest green
Far from all the chaos and the noise
And the river she sangs to me
I could swear it sounded like you`re voice
There to comfort me
Soothing as a gentle breeze

Everywhere I go
I can feel you all around me
In the sunrise, in the moonlight
I breathe you in like the air
You`re everywhere

Everywhere I go
I can feel you all around me
In the sunrise, in the moonlight
I breathe you in like the air
Oh I breathe you in like the air
You`re everywhere

Heath

I just came back from Brussels, from seeing my brokie family there, and you were there with us, like I carried you there with me.

Watching the movie again was both beautiful and painful... I started crying a few minutes after it started just from looking at you and thinking how beautiful you are. Watching every little nuance, every subtle expression, every move, thinking how talented and amazing you were there, giving life to Ennis. Watching the movie is not the same for me again since you left us, all of a sudden different lines have extra meaning ("is there anything interesting up there in heaven?") and I find myself crying not only for Ennis and Jack, but for you.

It was amazing to see how many forum members wore stripey socks - or anything else with stripes on it. I had my Joker socks and striped gloves, both gifts from my wonderful friends. I kept seeing you in every street corner, in every shop window. In the shirts and the crazy hats that you used to wear (and we'd point and say "oh, Heath would love this one"), in the yellow Dukati parked on the pavement (just like yours), in the man who walked by us carrying his little daughter on his shoulders. You were everywhere.

You're in my heart, wherever I go.
The truth is... sometimes I miss you so much I can hardly stand it.

  • Perfection is subjective, depends on the subject!
