Do I Love YOU?

February 17, 2009

Beyond the shadow of a doubt
As the mighty river flows
As the meadow gaily plays
With the wind on summer days
Bout as deep as deep can go
from the canyons to the sky
Like a mother as she cares
For the baby that she bears

Do I love you? Don’t you know by now?
Do I love you? Must I show you how?
Do I love you? Do I have to say?
Do I love you? Yes in every way!

About a  sacred as a hymn
and a Bible full of prayers
From a whisper, to a roar
Very much and even more
And I will say it with my eyes
And I’ll share it with each night
If in death the good Lord is kind
You’ll be the last thing on my mind

Do I love you? Don’t you know by now?
Do I love you? Must I show you how?
Do I love you? Must  I always say?
Do I love you? Yes in every way!

Do I love you? You should know by now.
Do I love you? Must I show you how?
Do I love you? I will always say..
Do I love you? Yes in every way!

Do I love you? You should know by now.
Do I love you?…(fades)

Yes I love YOU

I love YOU in every way & every day…

Have you ever thought about the lyrics of the song Row, Row, Row Your Boat ?

The composer said ‘row’ three times – in other words, he meant it. Get moving.

But do it gently.. meaning ‘without harm’.

Down the streamwith the flow of Universal energy. With the flow of consciousness.

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, four times. He’s saying ‘be joyful’.

Life is but a dream. And each of us has our own individual dream.

What are you waiting for, my friends? Let’s start singing now…

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.

This post is inspired by LB’s comment in my post, See.

Father’s Eyes

June 15, 2008

I may not be every mother’s dream for her little girl,
And my face may not grace the mind of everyone in the world.
But that’s all right, as long as I can have one wish I pray:
When people look inside my life, I want to hear them say,

She’s got her father’s eyes,
Her father’s eyes;
Eyes that find the good in things,
When good is not around;
Eyes that find the source of help,
When help just can’t be found;
Eyes full of compassion,
Seeing every pain;
Knowing what you’re going through
And feeling it the same.
Just like my father’s eyes,
My father’s eyes,
My father’s eyes,
Just like my father’s eyes.

And on that day when we will pay for all the deeds we have done,
Good and bad they’ll all be had to see by everyone.
And when you’re called to stand and tell just what you saw in me,
More than anything I know, I want your words to be,

She had her father’s eyes,
Her father’s eyes;
Eyes that found the good in things,
When good was not around;
Eyes that found the source of help,
When help would not be found;
Eyes full of compassion,
Seeing every pain;
Knowing what you’re going through,
And feeling it the same.
Just like my father’s eyes,
My father’s eyes,
My father’s eyes,
Just like my father’s eyes.
My father’s eyes,
My father’s eyes,
Just like my father’s eyes.

I may not be every mother’s dream for her little girl,
And my face may not grace the mind of everyone in the world.
But that’s all right, as long as I can have one wish I pray:
When people look inside my life, I want to hear them say,

She’s got her father’s eyes,
Her father’s eyes;
Eyes that find the good in things,
When good is not around;
Eyes that find the source of help,
When help just can’t be found;
Eyes full of compassion,
Seeing every pain;
Knowing what you’re going through
And feeling it the same.
Just like my father’s eyes,
My father’s eyes,
My father’s eyes,
Just like my father’s eyes.

And on that day when we will pay for all the deeds we have done,
Good and bad they’ll all be had to see by everyone.
And when you’re called to stand and tell just what you saw in me,
More than anything I know, I want your words to be,

She had her father’s eyes,
Her father’s eyes;
Eyes that found the good in things,
When good was not around;
Eyes that found the source of help,
When help would not be found;
Eyes full of compassion,
Seeing every pain;
Knowing what you’re going through,
And feeling it the same.
Just like my father’s eyes,
My father’s eyes,
My father’s eyes,
Just like my father’s eyes.
My father’s eyes,
My father’s eyes,
Just like my father’s eyes.

Although Amy Grant is referring to the eyes of Our Heavenly Father, my Earthly Father truly did have “the eyes that saw the good in things”.

I LOVE YOU, DAD.

If I ruled the World

March 16, 2008

What would you do if you ruled the world?

If I ruled the world, ev’ry day would be the first day of spring
Every heart would have a new song to sing
And we’d sing of the joy every morning would bring

If I ruled the world, ev’ry man would be as free as a bird,
Ev’ry voice would be a voice to be heard
Take my word we would treasure each day that occurred

My world would be a beautiful place
Where we would weave such wonderful dreams
My world would wear a smile on its face
Like the man in the moon has when the moon beams
If I ruled the world every man would say the world was his friend
There’d be happiness that no man coud end
No my friend, not if I ruled the world
Every head would be held up high
There’d be sunshine in everyone’s sky
If the day ever dawned when I ruled the world
