Wish you were here!

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
........How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here..........

- Wish you were here (Wish you were here), Pink Floyd, 1975

Saluting Richard (Rick) Wright who was the founding member of the band, Pink Floyd and its songwriter,

Without you I would not have known Wish you were here, Interstellar Overdrive, A Saucerful of Secrets, Careful with That Axe Eugene, One Of These Days, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, The Great Gig in the Sky, Us and Them, The Dark Side of the Moon, Division Bell and many many more

Whereever you are, your soul isn't lost amidst even the greatest gig in the sky, there are no more black hole like looks and I will say with high hopes that the dark side of the moon prompts to shine on you crazy diamond.

Living the final cut in remorse, in spirit, numb yet comfortable. Rest in peace.
Heaven is a better place with you around.
