Missing You Dear Friend

cute cat and dog picture 2

When distance flies between us
When old time, it flutters by
When seasons choose to leave us
When hello becomes goodbye

When telephones stop ringing
When the letterbox seems sad
When emotions are silent
When relationships go bad

Oh! That’s the way of the stranger
Please don’t let our hearts disconnect
I’m here for you still, my dear friend
May our strong bond, sweet love, reflect

It doesn’t mean we have to speak daily
It doesn’t mean flowers have to be sent
It doesn’t mean we must know everything
Just having you in my life … I’m content

My Heart, It Goes Awandering

beautiful red heart background vector

I seem to have lost a little part of me
The part which hears His small, still voice
So I searched across oceans wide
In mountain depths, I have no choice

I seem to have lost a little part of me
The pool from which sweet joy, it flows
My heart, it goes awandering
Where it goes, only the Lord knows

I seem to have lost a little part of me
Where love fills me to completeness
I’ve turned my back on all that’s safe
Traded His truth for emptiness

I seem to have lost a little part of me
Where teardrops beat a path to fill
Where silence sounds so deafening
Where help seems so absent and still

I seem to have lost a little part of me
Maybe this trial has an ending
In times of impending defeat
’Tis only He, my heart mending

I seem to have found that vital part of me
That part that beats the tune of love
The only reason I found it
Letting go, it fell from above

TENDING MY FATHER’S SHEEP (Song Lyrics)

Shepherd Boy.jpg

Just a humble shepherd boy
Daily tending my father’s sheep
Roaming through the hills unseen
Eyes upon them, awake, asleep

Chorus
Wither will they go
Wither will they stay
Wither will their food come from
Wither will they play
Oft awandering from me
Oft close by my feet
Doesn’t matter either way
I love them, love their bleat

Searching for lush, green pastures
Waters flowing abundantly
And hanging leaves for shelter
Safe from winds that lash suddenly

Chorus
Wither will they go
Wither will they stay
Wither will their food come from
Wither will they play
Oft awandering from me
Oft close by my feet
Doesn’t matter either way
I love them, love their bleat

Watching for dangers and fear
Aware of their frailty, weakness
Needing me to lead them, till
The heavens draw back in darkness

Oh! Why did He chose me
And why not another
I’d strayed so far from home
Far from father, mother
But in His sweetest arms
Carried me to His side
Held me so tenderly
Whispered, here you’ll abide

Chorus
Wither will they go
Wither will they stay
Wither will their food come from
Wither will they play
Oft awandering from me
Oft close by my feet
Doesn’t matter either way
I love them, love their bleat

I THOUGHT I WAS HIDDEN (Song Lyrics)

the romantic theme of highdefinition picture 1

I’m in hiding, hiding from love
Hiding from eyes, blessed far above
Always running, going nowhere
Looking for hope, someone to care

I’m lost amidst life’s turbulence
Dark, swirling clouds breeding suspense
Feet they move, I’m going backwards
Head downcast, tug of war upwards

Chorus
Crying tears, You caught them
Fighting fears, You bound them
Wasted years, restored them
And all because
All because
I thought I was hidden
Away from Your love
Hidden forever
Separated
I thought
I was hidden

I can’t do this, I’m so alone
This heart of mine has turned to stone
The light it fades, joy’s door has shut
A load so weary, heavy; but

You shone Your light, caused me to see
Whispered sweet words, caused me to be
Wrapped in a love, all enduring
Wrapped in a love, love amazing

Chorus
Crying tears, You caught them
Fighting fears, You bound them
Wasted years, restored them
And all because
All because
I thought I was hidden
Away from Your love
Hidden forever
Separated
I thought
I was hidden

Crying tears, You caught them
Fighting fears, You bound them
Wasted years, restored them

Love sent from Bethlehem
Love sent from Bethlehem

I AM BEAUTIFUL, I AM LOVED (A Song in My Heart)

animal beautiful blue

Whispers of my Father’s love
Permeate my soul
Whispers of His pure, sweet love
Love that transcends all

Feeling oh! so beautiful
Feeling oh! so loved
Gift from heaven’s Wonderful
No longer unloved

I am beautiful, I am loved
And no one can convince me otherwise
Because the One called Love
Wrote it on my heart
Before I took my first breath
He breathed love into my heart

Birdies singing blessed tune
Still flowers blooming
All of nature will be soon
No longer groaning

And as I look to the skies
Whether grey or blue
No more held with Satan’s lies
Child of God, brand new

I am beautiful, I am loved
And no one can convince me otherwise
Because the One called Love
Wrote it on my heart
Before I took my first breath
He breathed love into my heart

Yes, before I took my first breath
He breathed love into my heart

THE SONG OF FORGIVENESS (Song Lyrics)

Heart shines background

Chorus
May we live a life of forgiveness
May we breathe sweet love, I forgive you
May we step to the joy of knowing
Forgiveness is for me, and for you

Inhale the sweet word of I
Exhale healing, forgive you
Three words that will always be
Etched deep in eternity

Doesn’t matter who said what
Doesn’t matter who did what
It happened, and now it’s time
For hurting heart wounds to shut

Tears will bring hope to the now
So let go, and you’ll be freed
May those wounds be shut and healed
They’ll no longer ache and bleed

Chorus
May we live a life of forgiveness
May we breathe sweet love, I forgive you
May we step to the joy of knowing
Forgiveness is for me, and for you

Don’t be frightened, or afraid
Don’t worry, you’re not alone
The hand of One who loves you
Reaches out now for His own

I’m sorry, I’m so sorry
For all the pain I caused you
If you hurt me, broke my heart
I release and forgive you

Inhale the sweet word of I
Exhale healing, forgive you
Three words that will always be
Etched deep in eternity

Chorus
May we live a life of forgiveness
May we breathe sweet love, I forgive you
May we step to the joy of knowing
Forgiveness is for me, and for you

BECAUSE I NEEDED YOU (Song Lyrics)

I wrote these lyrics for you, my dear husband. Yes, you were sent to me because I needed you … I still do … and I always will. Happy 32nd Wedding Anniversary from the depths of my heart.

heart love label 07 vector

A long time ago
Such long times gone past
Seasons that I knew
So many places
So many faces
And then came you, you

Chorus
Oh! You came to me when I needed you
You came to an empty heart such as mine
Life from the past had left a hole so blue
Your heart was sent to my heart to entwine

All through the summers
Heat which took my breath
Shadows that I knew
Searching for shelter
Dry heart (a)swelter
And then came you, you

All through the autumns
Leaves aglow with change
Sadness that I knew
Coolness of night air
Hard burden to bear
And then came you, you

Chorus
Oh! You came to me when I needed you
You came to an empty heart such as mine
Life from the past had left a hole so blue
Your heart was sent to my heart to entwine

All through the winters
Even without snow
Numbness that I knew
Watching time go by
Hearing my heart’s sigh
And then came you, you

All through the springtimes
New hope (a)calling
Fragrance that I knew
A love harmony
Sudden melody
’Cause along came you

Because I needed you
Needed another beat
Songs of my heart were lost
You came, now I’m complete
You came, now I’m complete

Chorus
Oh! You came to me when I needed you
You came to an empty heart such as mine
Life from the past had left a hole so blue
Your heart was sent to my heart to entwine

Lost Love

It’s been just over a year since dear sweet Louie Bear was taken away from our hearts. We have been blessed with a totally different fursonality (and challenging purrfriend for Meeko) …  little darling Moose, and oh! what a character he is. No hugs for you, thank you very much; but adorable and loving in his own special way.

I am reposting this … to say … if you have ever wanted to tell someone you like them, you love them, you want to hug them, forgive them, or ask them for forgiveness … do it. Life is so precious, and we do not know the number of our days.

Louie B (4).JPG

When you look into another’s eyes
Never presume it’ll be forever
Love locks two hearts together as one
To have loved is better than never

Life can bring joy, life can bring sorrow
The rains of summer turn into tears
A winter’s snow hides deep emotion
Spring and fall leave as another nears

Take a walk down your memory lane
Step into prints of those gone before
Love, it finally has its moment
My love, be prepared for what’s in store

When days turn into weeks and more years
Everything, nothing, ever changes
Love intense, ’cause one breath will be last
You’ll awake, they’re gone, nil exchanges

Christmas Wings

cardinal flower flower beautiful

On the gentle twilight breeze
The little wings did flutter
Bringing news of wondrous love
The birth of son to mother

A story told long ago
Of hope and expectation
Led the way harmonious
Bearing life’s jubilation

Oh! Hope and do not waver
For the Saviour’s here to stay
He was born that crystal night
Purity amongst the hay

On Christmas wings, they still come
To share a sweet, mournful note
He came to heal broken hearts
Keep love, peace and joy afloat

Christmas wings, love adorning
Midst beauty, or worldly ruin
And time cannot erase them
Hear Jesus call from within

Let’s sing, forever give thanks
Let’s shine, so others will see
’Cause that babe from heaven’s hands
Came to save you, you and me
