Spot the Regi-references

Recommended Posts

Here is a poem I wrote with quite a few references to different Regi songs - can you spot them all?

Your Face

I've watched your face through the years

And never noticed as you've aged.

Now looking back I see I missed it.

I see all the ways you've changed.


Innocent. The light was shining in your eyes from the start. Your fearless creativity a gift you freely share.

Curious. You've always wanted to know the answer, and you continue searching even if no one lives long enough to know what the point is.

Betrayed. "Why shouldn't it be me?" he asked, and you were too young to answer.

But it didn't break your spirit because our eyes see best with contrast.

Without the dark, we can't see the light.


Silly, and serious. Even Jiminy Cricket and Santa Clause know that laughing with God is sometimes all we have.

Sexy. With your eyes, your lips, your voice you are effortlessly seductive and confidently fall into my arms.

Loving. Anyone whose hair you cut has stars falling on their heads.

Daring. Depressed. Difficult. Wise.


I want to count the years with my fingers on your skin.

I want to know every crease of your eyes.

I want to kiss the wrinkles on your cheeks and run my fingers through your silver hair.

I want to watch myself age in the reflection of your eyes

And let your heart synchronize within me

To a love we've never known.

i love it! There are so many lines that I know are from somewhere but I can’t quite remember what song it’s from. When I read Boris Pasternak it is clear that Regina took a lot of inspiration from him. The cycle repeats!
