20 Years gone - but never forgotten

20 Years

20 Winter’s. 20 Spring’s. 20 Summer’s. 20 Fall’s. 7300 days and nights since you’ve gone. Time has it’s own agenda. Your time ran out so soon. You lived your time in your own time. All I have now is time on this planet with out you. God knows I have tried to make the best of it dear. I have put my best foot forward. I have tried to do what I thought was right by you, by me and by what we once had. I asked myself this morning what my life would have been like if we had just broken up and you had lived and we had become lifelong friends. Would I have had such a hard time finding true love again? Would I still be haunted by your memory? It’s hard to say and the “what if’s” mean nothing. They are only questions. I have lived these past 20 years in the only way I knew how. I have done my best to heal my heart and to try to love again. It’s hard when most men don’t have the strength of heart to live up to what we had. And I tell them what you and I had happened when we were so young- I am a different woman now. I am a warrior woman. I have wisdom, experience and scars. But my heart is soft and I am full of love. Love for the past, love for the present, and love for the future. I have enough love inside of me for everyone because I have learned to love my self. You helped me on that path Steve. I always said if I hadn’t loved and lost you, I might never have learned to love my self. It is the one thing I try to teach others…how to love themselves. I believe when we learn to really love ourselves- then we can love others whole-heartedly. I only hope that wherever you are my darling, you have learned to love yourself – as others love you and as I love you. I feel you around Steve, we all do. Your memory is still very alive to those of us who knew and loved you. So feel that love today on this 20th anniversary of your transition to the other side. You are blessed. I am blessed. We all are blessed to have experienced the likes of you on this planet. Rest in happiness with the angels and the masters and the saints in that place where spirit lives infinitely and unconditionally in the loving light of God.

Always,

 Lorelei "Martha" Shellist

God Bless Steven Maynard Clark April 23rd 1961 - Jan 8th 1991 -

Dear Steve, I am writing to you today in memory of your smile, your sweetness, your grace and your pain. I know I am not alone in this world as I carry the torch of your light and gifts forward to others. I am blessed to have known you and to have the opportunity to connect with so may people who love you now and loved you way back then. I only wish you could have known how loved you were, but you know it now and it grows stronger every day. You live in our memories Steve, You live in our hearts. Especially mine. Thank you for the wonderful music you created, your soulful riffs and your contagious smile. I love you, they love you and God loves you.  Always, Your Martha,

Another Year gone by....2010 -1991 = 19 years with out our Steve.

Dear Friends and Fans of Steve,
It is from my heart that I write to you at this time. Most of you have read my book and have learned more about the man we all loved. My intention was to share the human side of Steve, and myself, whether you approved of the way we behaved ourselves or not. The many wonderful letters I received showed me how much love, compassion and understanding you readers have had for us, and now hopefully for yourselves too.
If Steve were alive today I think he would be sober and ok with sharing his own truths in order to help others heal themselves too. I have to believe that this is true because of the support I have received from all of you, as well as his mates from the band and crew. But for today let's just remember the man with the dream to play guitar and travel the world in a rock 'n roll band. Steve Clark went after his dreams in spite of the status quo and the many nay-sayers that surrounded him. He was determined and didn't take no for an answer. His managers and band mates even called him "Dreams".  I believe if he were here today he would encourage you all to follow your dreams too.
Steve,
We love you, I love you,
I'll see you in my dreams...
Lorelei

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVE

 


 

Dear Beloved Friends of Steve...

Please join me at 5PM Pacific Time - 7PM Central Time - 8PM Eastern Time - In honor of Steve's transition to the other side for a 10 minute, candle-lit, silent meditation from wherever you are in the world. Thank you for joining me. Peace, Lorelei

  

          This is an old polaroid of Steve and me in London at Cafe Pacifico, our favorite Mexican restaurant at the time.  I had just finished the London Press week and he was there to be with me while he had a little time off from the writing of Hysteria. I remember his new black leather jacket he wore that night. He and Phil had been shopping on the King's Road that day. He was so proud of it.
         We were young and restless and in love. We didn't know what life would bring us. We didn't know the lessons we'd have to learn. Life and death lessons both at the same time. We thought the world was our oyster and we were invincible. It just goes to show that one never knows what lies ahead.
           Steve is missed today and everyday by me and you and many, many loving people. God knows just how much Steve is loved by all of us collectively. Let us remember to live life laughing and loving and living as if this is our last day on earth. Help us all to be kind and gentle to each other and ourselves. Steve would have wanted us to.
You are missed Steve Maynard Clark.
You are loved.

Song for Steve, "Call Your Name"

It seems like only yesterday we had a love so sweet

Your stark white smile just knocked me off my feet.

But we were so much younger then - I turn around to see

the whiskey drained your love away from me.

Now your gone I look around for anyone to blame

Did the Angels - or - the bottle call your name?

Oh I miss you

when the sun comes up

and the moon goes down

I miss you when I'm home alone

or out on the town

Your prayed for your courage

then drown in your pain

Did the Angels - or- the bottle call your name?

Sometimes I'll indulge myself - in your memory

with all the things you passed along to me.

I'll dress up in your overcoat

Your French cologne and shoes

I'll raise a toast and chase away my blues

And I'll miss you

when the sun comes up

and the moon goes down

I miss you when I'm home alone

or out on the town

Your prayed for your courage

then drown in your pain

Did the Angels - or- the bottle call your name?

Somewhere past Edens gate

Beyond fortune and fame

You found your freedom - your fate

Did it call you by name?

Oh I miss you

when the sun comes up

and the moon goes down

I miss you when I'm home alone

or out on the town

Your prayed for your courage

then drown in your pain

Did the Angels - or- the bottle call your name?

Did the Angels - or- the bottle?

Did the Angels - or- the bottle call your name?

 


Dear Friends of Steve

- Here we are at the 20th anniversary of the passing of Steve Clark. I hope you will play his music as long as you live and love him with all of your heart. I have written him a letter on the Steve Clark Tribute page here at this website. You can also go to my You Tube page and see the newest video I posted with footage from 1988 Hysteria Tour. No one- not even the band has this. So I hope you like it and I send you love and light - I know Steve is feeling the love. Blessings everyone, Lorelei

 

 

 

Dear Friends of Steve

April 23rd 2009

As you know today Steve would have been 48 years old. It has been a long time since we've seen the white lightning grace the stages across the world- whirling his guitar like a mighty sword and bending those notes until your hearts wrenched. All of us left with the question "why". Why would a young- beautiful man who had so much to live for let himself slip away so quickly.

Life is hard folks. It is a four letter word. In fact, everything important in life is a four letter word and then we die- and that's a three letter word...where am I going with this? Those of you who have read my book know my story now. Yes, it was a rough ride but a fun one too because I made it that way. I set my intentions to live my life to the fullest. I made choices- some better than others. Some things I would do differently now. Of course I'm older and wiser today. We all have our stories. You each have your own stories. And we hold on to our stories like blankets even if they don't serve us any longer. Why do we do that? Does it serve us to carry around our hurts? Our resentments? Our pain? I think not- I think we should write our stories down and then let them go to where they may serve others in a better way. Let go of the pain folks. Let those old wounds go. Steve let go and I believe he is happier wherever he is on this birthday today.

May he rest in peace. May we all find our peace inside of ourselves.

Peace be still.

Happy Birthday Maynard :-) Love Always Martha

  

Dear Beloved Bloggers,

Today is January 8th 2009. It has been 18 years now- get it? 18 years since our beloved Steve slipped away. Looking back it seems there has been no time passed at all. Like yesterday because it is still fresh in my mind and my memories. How I wish I could turn back the clock and "fix" things. But, I have learned that life is about acceptance. "Accepting what is."

Accepting what is is one of the hardest things to do. Our spirits come here to evolve. We do that through relationships. The toughest relationships teach us the most about acceptance and unconditional love....for ourselves and for others. Forgiveness of both is what we must strive for. "Forgive" means- to give as you gave before with understanding and compassion. In the 12 step programs they say, "Take what you want-and leave the rest."
I hope Runway RunAway will inspire you to follow your dreams with more love and compassion for yourself and others.
Please join us at 5PM for silence, candlelight and reflection of the love we have in our hearts for Steve.. During that time ask him- ask Spirit- "What shall I take from all of this."
Then wait- for the answer...
Peace,
Lorelei

My intention in re-creating this blog is to open up a safe place for others to process their feelings about the book, Steve, life, love, and healing. Let us proceed in the spirit of LOVE & Kindness.

"Imagine all the people living life in peace."John Lennon
