Rainbows are special,
Because they are never seen,
Excepting for when,
We look past the dark clouds,
And see that the sunshine was there all along.
Rainbows are special,
Because my mother loved them so
Rainbows are special,
Because they have come to represent,
The promise of the Universe,
That what has been created,
Shall not be uncreated,
Rainbows are special,
Because they sing,
To our lovely lady,
Like Annie Lenox... 'Why'?..



 How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it. -Marcus Aurelius

Bless you, I remember sending you that when I was trying to find a way to let you know I understood your pain..thank you for the return compliment.

WHY
Annie Lennox

How many times do I have to try to tell you
That I'm sorry for the things I've done
But when I start to try to tell you
That's when you have to tell me
Hey, this kind of trouble's only just begun
I tell myself too many times
Why don't you ever learn to keep your big mouth shut
That's why it hurts so bad to hear the words
That keep on falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Tell me...
Why
Why
I may be mad
I may be blind
I may be viciously unkind
But I can still read what you're thinking
And I've heard it said too many times
That you'd be better off
Besides...
Why can't you see this boat is sinking
Let's go down to the water's edge
And we can cast away those doubts
Some things are better left unsaid

But they still turn me inside out
Turning inside out turning inside out
Tell me...
Why
Tell me...
Why
This is the book I never read
These are the words I never said
This is the path I'll never tread
These are the dreams I'll dream instead
This is the joy that's seldom spread
These are the tears...
The tears we shed
This is the fear
This is the dread
These are the contents of my head
And these are the years that we have spent
And this is what they represent
And this is how I feel
Do you know how I feel?
'Cause I don't think you know how I feel
I don't think you know what I feel
I don't think you know what I feel
You don't know what I feel


 Yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream...

A beautiful tribute to a beautiful lady whose heart is bigger than one could imagine ...   ... Bless you Hawke ...

Chagrin d'amour dure toute la vie.
