Whatever Gets You Through


One of my favorite poems that I have written, and one of the most requested reposts. Written 5 years ago after what seemed like a bad time for just about everyone I knew.

Whatever Gets You Through

I can hear it in the trees
As he looks at me and coos
What ever gets you through baby,
Whatever gets you through

And in the darkness of the night
When Angels call your name
I hear the silent whisper
Of the heart I could not tame

And the longing stays within me
The turbulence untrue
Whatever gets you through baby,
Whatever gets you through

And it tears up the darkness
And wakes up the cold
As I feel his arms around me
But yet I cannot hold

And yet the daylight comes again
Peaceful in the Morn
No one would ever know
The rock on which I’m torn

See it in the mirror
Hide it from your friends
The restless that never sleeps,

The sleepless from within

And it howls at the moon
As I take a different queue
Whatever gets you through baby,
Whatever gets you through

Now cut it down to trade
Now wash it down the drain
Drink it up with whiskey
But the sameness still remains

Yes in the stillness of the night
A stillness that I never knew
Whatever get your through baby
Whatever gets you through
