kiota to share as we go

Another friend has shared the lyrics to a song -- "Leave All The Rest" -- by [or covered by] Linkin Park. Don't know the melody, but many of the words correlate 100%.... I adapted and expanded it a bit for this last gift and Kiota-themed post.

I dreamt I was missing
And you were so scared
But no one would listen
'Cause no one else cared....
Then after my dreaming
I woke with this fear --
What can I be leaving
When I'm finished up here?

When my last moments come
And I take them and go,
Forget the wrongs that I've done?
Help me leave here behind
Some reasons you'll miss me:

So please don't resent me,
I'm leaving my best:
Keep me here at your heart
And leave out the rest.

So don't be afraid!
I'm not, anymore.
I've taken my beatings,
I've shared as I've stayed.
I'm strong on the surface,
Not all the way through;
I've never been perfect
But neither have you.

So when you are asking,
I want you to know
Inside miles of hurt
I had hidden so well
Dreaming someone could come
And take me from hell:

But I can't be who that is.
I can't be who you are.
Now, I know that so well.

So if you are asking
I want you to know:

I leave you my pillows
To rest all your scars.

I leave you my hopefulness
I just have found.

I leave you my smile
To warm through your soul:

I leave you my loving
To keep as you go;
I leave you my loving
To share as we go.

merry meet
and merry part
and merry meet again.

I love that song and it really fits the situation so well.

If you want to know what it sounds like:

I really appreciate your Ki posts...they really helped/help.

Take care of yourself!

Thank you, T-T. I'm taking good care and healing nicely. Each of you is helping, I can feel that each hour.

She is too. She brought me all of you.

When you love, it's not just a test tube exercise with safety equipment all around. I think that when you truly love, you are trusting, and you open yourself emotionally as far as you can. So if healing ever becomes necessary, peace can flood all through you and wash all the bitter wounds away, down to the deepest, as you keep yourself open and melt into joy.

Otherwise you are closing up and you are all 'If Only, If Only, If Only' for years and years. Kiota would never want that for any of us. She said so.

WOW thanks for the link! ... Gonna go listen right now!

I also found a composite picture by the same name, "Leave Out All The Rest", filed in Kiota's Favourites sub-folder over on her deviantArt site. So she personally selected that picture and also probably knew the song.

The picture tells a whole lot about her.


So many connections, coming together....

A beautiful adaptation. :)

Thanks, Reya. Means a lot to me that you said that :O

Still tweaking it a bit. There'll be a chance to read it in public. Gonna totally ditch the music for a whole different mood. Linkin Park will love me.

Long as I don't charge for tix I'm safe ;)
