Deep Purple

when the deep purple falls
over sleepy garden walls
and the stars begin
to flicker in the sky
through the mist of a memory
you wander back to me
breathing my name with a sigh.
in the still of the night
once again I hold you tight
though you're gone
your love lives on
when moonlight beams
and as long as my heart will beat,
sweet lover, we'll always meet
here in my deep purple dreams

A Donny and Marie Osmond song that I used to love back when I was a young girl filled with giddy dreams. For me, the best gift the Net brings are the songs and music that I grew up to....

Desolation Blues

ain't no sunshine when you're gone
it's not warm when you're away
ain't no sunshine when you're gone
and you're always gone too long
everytime you go away

can i live without you
now that i know you
now that i know you exist?
can i be the same
now that i've changed
with the gentle touch of your hand?
now that i'm divided
by my need for you
without you
can i be whole again?

A New Year's Prayer

Dear Lord, please give me...
A few friends who understand me,
and yet remain my friends

A work to do which has real value,
without which the world would feel the poorer.

A mind unafraid to travel,
even though the trail be not blazed.
An understanding heart...
A sense of humour.

Time for quiet, silent meditation.
A feeling of the presence of God
And the patience to wait for the coming of these things,
with the wisdom to know them when they come.

W.R. Hunt
