Paul & Linda McCartney

paul linda

Her spirit moves wind chimes ..
When air is still and fills the rooms with fragrance of lily
Her eyes blue green, still seen perfectly happy with nothing
Her spirit sets the water pipes a humming fat lektronic force be with ya sound
Her spirit talks to me through animals, beautiful creature lay with me
Bird that calls my name, insists that she is here and nothing left to fear
Bright white squirrel foot of tree, fixes me with innocent gaze
Her spirit talks to me .. Consolation
[Blackbird Singing: Poems and Lyrics, 1965-1999]

Paul dapat ide nulis lirik cinta saat berada di Rishikesh-India, awal 1968. Lalu ditemani George pake ukulele, mereka tuntaskan nadanya. Peristiwa ini dikenang lantaran Paul lagi berantem dgn pacarnya di Liverpool, Francie Swarts. Dikirain pengen rujuk. Setelah balik kursus dari Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, The Beatels masuk studio. Draft lagu Paul tsb masuk untuk rekaman White Album. Paul sempat bimbang merilis lagu yg diberi judul “I Will”, karena malah putus dgn Francie. Tercetus lewat lirik “For if I ever saw you, I didn’t catch your name”. Gugurlah niat lagu I Will sbg lagu cinta. Pasca White Album diluncurkan, Paul bertemu Linda sang photographer, ditemani lagu A Whiter Shade Of Pale. Paul spontan merasa, I Will seolah menunggu serta ditujukan buat Linda sejak tatapan pertama. Maka Paul dan Linda menjadi duet paling akur dari pasangan Bitels lain yg urakan. Paul membenahi hidupnya, meski Linda -tentu saja- menjadi musuh para wanita sedunia sbg Linda McCartney. Mereka hidup bersahaja sbg keluarga vegetarian. Till death do us part, begitulah faktanya. Hingga kangker payudara memisahkan mereka, seperti Paul kecil pernah kehilangan ibunya oleh penyebab serupa. (nDy)
