The Power of the Heart
You know me I like to dream a lot
Of this and that and what is not
And finally I figured out what was what
It was the power of the heart
Lou Reed might not seem like the obvious choice for Valentine’s Day. But his words reflecting the deep bond between himself and Laurie Anderson are echoed in the Rolling Stone photo I used as a reference for my drawing.
This was my 4th attempt. The physical resemblance to Lou is not as close as I would have liked, but I think I did finally capture the feelings.
You looked at me and I looked at you
The sleeping heart was shining through,
The wispy cobwebs that we’re breathing through
The power of the heart
R.I.P. Lou. And Happy Valentine’s Day.
