Quatrième Anniversaire

Faz agora quatro dias, santo pai
que tu partiste;
quatro dias para ti -
quatro anos para nôs.
Olha por nôs
como nôs olharemes por ti
pelo os ultimos tempos

Que a Vontade de Deus
Seja Feita

I always looked at Peter Gabriel's body of work as something that could release emotion in you - especially the most nostalgic of emotions. How surprising it was to learn that he felt that said body of work did not include a song worthy of such a thing - and so he created one, back in 2002, to help people cope with the pain of September 11th of the previous year...

He titled the song, quite fittingly, "I Grieve."

How fitting, also, that I discover the song as I sat here, watching one by one again all the videos (those that are still available, granted) that I had embeded onto the famous Honor Page dedicated to my father, back on the ill-fated GeoCities (fear not - the highlights of the Honor Page are preserved here - almost a whole year before GeoCities' own unceremonious demise...)

And so it was that, after viewing for the umpteenth time Peter Gabriel's "San Jacinto" (which, to me, is a song that contains precious hope and enlightened lyrics about the afterlife, an afterlife in which "we will walk... on the land... we will breathe... of the air... we will drink... from the stream... we will live... Hold The Line!" - all this in a song that is titled with my father's middlename!) that I discovered... I Grieve.

So fitting.

I Grieve.

And I still do, four years later...
Aye I do.
