Bridge over Troubled Water
Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics


When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all, all
I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh, if you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

When you're weary
Feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I'll dry them all
I'm on your side
Oh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I'll take your part
Oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh, if you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

Hello
My cat died several years ago.. I really loved that cat
I wrote a whimsical poem about him because he was so very funny in real life.
I am a poet
but I found it difficult to write about him as he was close to.my heart
Here it is
Original poem

Jasper Whippettail
******************
This poem`s for Jasper “Whippet” tail My lovely siamese cat. He was so funny I can imagine him now, Dressed up in tails and top hat! You know, he was also very crafty, And liked to sit, Where your warm bum had just sat. He would often “tip toe” in the lounge To give your legs a tap, Then curl up very comfortably Right in the middle of your lap. . . You`d realise he had so much love in his eyes As he would nuzzle you, and kiss you quick. His body would arch then shudder, And his tail would give that little “flick”. He was an avid follower of the “fish” religion, And liked to completely fill his tum. He also loved to stretch out on the window ledge, Indeed, a “worshipper” of the sun. He wasn`t much of a “mouser” and he never caught a rat! He slowed right down in his latter years, Took it easy, even got a little fat! But sadly one day, he passed away And I cried many tears. He was a wonderful friend and companion, For oh, so many years…

My Dad died on February 18 2020 from heart complications, I was 21 at the time and I now just graduated college (no thanks to the pandemic taking away our ceremony.) Simon and Garfunkel was one of my dad’s favorites and we played this song at his funeral. Today is Father’s Day and it’s been very difficult for me so far. My Dad was a Vietnam vet and a very loving man, I thought the least I could do for him today was talk about him here under one of his favorites. The most heartfelt song I’ve ever heard.

God bless you and your father for serving our country, sir; Americans do not forget!
