Special song that holds dear to me...


I was talking with a friend today..and realized how much I am like my father....

My father passed away at age 54 due to cancer...He lived life to the fullest, enjoyed people..would take his shirt off his back for anyone in need...he had a big heart..I knew he was a well liked man...and at his wake I really was amazed how many friends he did have..He also enjoyed birds...so I dedicated this song to him...
(we were very close)


Wind Beneath My Wings -
Bette Midler written by: Jeff Silbar and Larry Henley

It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way,
you always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name -- for so long,
a beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle.
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing with out you..

Fly, fly, fly away,
you let me fly so high
Oh, fly, fly
so high against the sky, so high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you, thank God for you,
the wind beneath my wings..

If you've ever been to my blog, you know I love this artist. This song was written for a guy, so I made a few minor changes so it would fit you. I miss my daddy too, Wendy

Gavin's Song
by Marc Broussard
album: Carencro (2004)

I wish you freedom
I wish you peace
I wish you nights of stars that beckon you to sleep
I wish you heartache that leaves you more a woman
I wish I could be there, but I can't

I wish you places that sit so still
Where people never ever change and never ever will
I wish I could hold you and make you understand
I wish I could be there, but I cant

[chorus]
Be good for your mama
Cause she'll need a hand to hold
Girl, she loves you
More than you'll ever know
There are rhymes and there are reasons
And times when nothing stayed the same
But you know my love still remains

I wish you wisdom
I wish you years
I wish you armies to conquer all your fears
I wish you courage for all that life demands
I wish I could be there, but I can't

[chorus]
Be good for your mama
Cause she'll need a hand to hold
Girl, she loves you
More than you'll ever know
There are rhymes and there are reasons
And times when nothing stayed the same
But you know my love still remains

I wish we were together
I wish I was home
I wish there were nights where I was never alone
I know I've said it but I'll say it once again
I wish I could be there, but I can't

A fine way to remember a loved one, D. He must look down with pride at the lovely, kind-hearted daughter he left behind.

One knows how many friends he has at time of sorrow, for then and only then it shows they care. You may forget the one with whom you have laughed, but never the one with whom you have wept.

Parents are the foundation of our souls, for they have molded us into our own beings.

Thanks for sharing.
