HEATH ~ THIS WORLD WAS NEVER MEANT FOR ONE AS BEAUTIFUL AS YOU


Heath in I'm Not There

..................................................

Video of Morning Yearning by Ben Harper
Video directed by Heath Ledger
..................................................
Heath is proof that we are connected by the Spirit of Life.
His spirit was bright and continues to shine in our souls.

"Morning Yearning"

A finger's touch upon my lips
It's a morning yearning
Pull the curtains shut, try to keep it dark
But the sun is burning

The world awakens on the run
And will soon be earning
With hopes of better days to come
It's a morning yearning

Another day, another chance to get it right
Must I still be learning
Baby crying kept us up all night
With her morning yearning

Like a summer rose, I'm a victim of the fall
But I'm soon returning
Your love' s the warmest place the sun ever shines
My morning yearning.

Michelle Williams speaking of her former partner, Heath Ledger:

His family and I watch Matilda as she whispers to trees,
hugs animals,
and takes steps two at a time,
and we know that he is with us still.

Matilda's Song

Text from poster's Youtube page sidebar:
This is a tribute to Heath Ledger & the two great loves of his life, Michelle & especially Matilda Rose. Heath asked his friend Ben Harper to write this song as a lullaby for his beautiful Matilda. It's called Happy Ever After In Your Eyes


"Happy Everafter In Your Eyes"

The morning sunrise spread her wings
While the moon hung in the sky
Held the sea in your hands
And happy everafter in your eyes

Couldn't leave you to go to heaven
I carry you in my smile
For the first time my true reflection i see
Happy everafter in your eyes

Every star in the night
Promises the dawn
I will be there if you fall
To ever so heavily rest upon

All that i can give you
Is forever yours to keep
Wake up every day with a dream
And happyever after in your eyes

Happy everafter is in your eyes.

Heath Ledger

Text at the poster's sidebar at Youtube:
The body of Heath Ledger was cremated in Australia on Saturday and his remains were laid to rest.

Michelle Williams read Shakespeare at the service and some of Ledger's favorite songs were played, including the Beatles' Here Comes the Sun.

After the service, mourners gathered at a beach side restaurant and many, including Williams, went fully clothed into the ocean as they watched the sunset.

Although I believe Heath didn't kill himself intentionally, I find some of the words in this song ~ Vincent ~ cause me to think of Heath. All I have is my feelings from my reading various things about Heath. I can believe that he was shy as I read and I can believe he was in despair over his break-up with Michelle and not being able to see his beloved daughter, Matilda Rose Ledger near the end of his life. It is too bad that he had too many conflicting prescribed medications that were lethal. When we are young and going through the loss of love in our lives, we don't always think clearly.

Lyrics

Vincent

Starry, starry night

paint your palette blue and grey

look out on a summer's day with eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills
sketch the trees and the daffodils

catch the breeze and the winter chills

in colors on the snowy linen land.
And now I understand what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity
how you tried to set them free.
They would not listen
they did not know how

perhaps they'll listen now.

Starry, starry night
flaming flowers that brightly blaze

swirling clouds in violet haze reflect in
Vincent's eyes of China blue.

Colors changing hue
morning fields of amber grain
weathered faces lined in pain
are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand.

And now I understand
what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity

how you tried to set them free.
perhaps they'll listen now.

For they could not love you

but still your love was true

and when no hope was left in sight on that
starry, starry night.
You took your life
as lovers often do;

But I could have told you
Vincent
this world was never meant for one as beautiful as you.

Starry, starry night
portraits hung in empty halls

frameless heads on nameless walls
with eyes
that watch the world and can't forget.
Like the stranger that you've met

the ragged men in ragged clothes

the silver thorn of bloody rose
lie crushed and broken
on the virgin snow.

And now I think I know
what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity
how you tried to set them free.
They would not listen
they're not
list'ning still
perhaps they never will.
