Tears in Heaven – Tears on Earth

Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton is one of my favorite songs, which I’m sharing with you because I’m feeling blue today. I could have added pictures of Lillies, Orchids or Roses. However, I bought some fresh Parrot Tulips a couple of days ago and I’ve gotten the impression that I can observe how they’re blossoming by the minute. It’s amazing!

Would you know my name?

If I saw you in heaven

Would it be the same?

If I saw you in heaven

I must be strong

And carry on

‘Cause I know I don’t belong

Here in heaven

Would you hold my hand?

If I saw you in heaven

Would you help me stand?

If I saw you in heaven

I’ll find my way

Through night and day

‘Cause I know I just can’t stay

Here in heaven

Time can bring you down

Time can bend your knees

Time can break your heart

Have you begging please

Begging please

no tears, but beautiful colors

Beyond the door

There’s peace, I’m sure

And I know there’ll be no more

Tears in heaven

As many of you probably know Eric Clapton wrote TEARS IN HEAVEN after his 4 year old son Conor fell out of the window of a New York apartment building. It was his way of dealing with this terrible loss.

TEARS IN HEAVEN

Eric has said, “My question was ‘Will I see you again?’ In a sense, it wasn’t even a sad song. It was a song of belief. When it talks about there will be no more tears in heaven, I think its a song of optimism, of reunion. What was worrying me was I hope to God we didn’t meet up in some kind of heaven hotel lobby and just walk by one another.” (From the 5 April 1998 Australian 60 Minutes interview).

from: Where’s Eric! – fan club magazine

For those of you who haven’t heard Tears in Heaven in a long time (or never before), here’s a link to an interview, where Eric Clapton performed it for the very first time.

The song brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. Nevertheless, being able to let them flow does help big time in my opinion.

no more tears when you see this parrot tulip in full bloom

After all the sadness – happiness comes back by just looking at these amazing tulips.

Don’t you agree?

Caring is sharing, hence I’ve linked this post to Cee’s Tulip post HERE.

    The flowers are beautiful, Claudia. What a sad yet hopeful song. It reminds me of this song that Toby Mac wrote after his son died from an accidental overdose. I just love it:

    I completely agree, such a sad song on the tragedy of loosing a child, so very moving. When I hear it it always makes me wonder about meeting people again, and so many questions.

      🙂 So true, dear Susan!
      I think the most important thing is to never stop telling the people that surround us how much we care for them.
      Happy Easter to you 🙂

    Du hast Recht, Claudia. Das Lied ist grandios, obwohl ich Clapton normalerweise für sein virtuoses Gitarrenspiel schätze, ist es doch echt Emotion die auf alle Ewigkeit darin wohnt. Und ja, auch bei mir fließen immer Tränen, wenn ich es höre. Ebenso bei
    Tom Waits – “I Hope That I Don’t Fall In Love With You” oder Sons Of Bill “Find My Way Back Home” (beides bei you tube). Es fühlt sich manchmal ganz wunderbar an, einfach alle Tränen aus sich heraus laufen zu lassen. Heiß und salzig. Ohne Grund oder akute Traurigkeit mich einfach zu Tränen rühren zu lassen.
    Meine allerbesten Osterwünsche für Dich und Deine Tochter
    Sunny

      🙂 Da bin ich ganz Deiner Meinung, liebe Sunny.
      Zu Tom Waits habe ich auch eine spezielle Beziehung – diese Stimme und dieses Genuschel sind unvergleichlich!
      Die Gruppe Sons Of Bill kannte ich nicht – schönes Lied. Danke für den Tipp.
      Dir und Deiner Familie auch ein schönes, entspanntes Osterfest!
      Ganz liebe Grüße 🙂

      🙂 Thank you, dear Carrie!
      The words to the song, as well as the tune, by Eric Clapton are so beautiful and so touching at the same time.
      A very HAPPY and blessed Easter to you and your family too!
      Lots of love and hugs from this side of the world,
      xoxoxoxoxo 🙂

    Wunderschöne Blumen und ein wunderschönes Lied. Und auch wenn ich mir Kirche und Co nicht viel am Hut habe: Wir werden sie alle wiedersehen. Und dann werden wir nicht weinen, sondern lachen.
    Liebe Grüße und fühl dich umarmt

      🙂 Thank you, dear Judy!
      I’ve never seen any of them open up so beautifully and big. They’re fully opened larger than a saucer!
      Stay safe and have a very HAPPY day! 🙂

    Oh Claudia, what a stunning series of tulips. I’ve always loved this variety and your photos showed them off so beautifully. 😀
    Stay safe and happy!

      🙂 Dear Cee,
      I thought you might like them. Even when they started loosing their petals I had to keep them a tad longer. They were so amazing!
      You stay safe and HAPPY, too! 🙂
