Thank You
Softly, gently, in my mind, I whisper thus Your Name
and ask that You look at me, for I am not the same,
for You have entered my own heart, wrapped a golden chain
from which You tug my conscience, no, I am not the same.

You have been so wonderful, You ask me to believe
You cause me to see the light, You ask that I not grieve;
Youíve given me all treasures, You say You will not leave,
You ask so very little, You only ask that I believe.

You allow me to be human, and forgive my vast mistakes,
You lift me up so gently, You will not let me break;
and when You give me burden, You then raise me up;
Youíve given me Your Sonís soul, to drink from this, Your cup.

In my younger, youthful days, I sorely let You down,
it was fine for others, that Your Son had born the crown
and when I was in dark despair, I didnít call Your name,
for I would not have You look at me, I was not the same.

But You took Your own good time, with such sweet, loving grace
For me to see Your heavenly soul, for me to see Your face;
to feel Your love uncommon, to me Your gifts youíve shown
and now I am so humbled, for in Your Love Iíve grown.

Today I ask for guiding light, in wisdom I would walk
Today I pray for others, ask that You even guide my talk;
Today I give my heart and soul, to You and many others,
and ask for love from my arms, to wrap Ďround my sisters and brothers.

Sunshine - this is very moving - at first I didn't know to whom it was addressed, but you did a fine piece of writing in guiding me in that direction.  Sweet Sunshine - very nice

In the name of God, Godliness and Sheer Spiritual excellence, this one deserves a standing ovation....

Regards to you Karilea,
Sudhir.

 Hey you, out there in the cold,
Getting lonely, getting old, can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisle,
With itchy feet and fading smile, can you feel me?
Hey you, don't help them to bury the light.
Don't give in without a fight.
Hey you, out there on your own,
Sitting naked by the phone, would you touch me?
Hey you, with your ear against the wall,
Waiting for someone to call out, would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home....

by Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) - The Wall

Marcy, you are indeed a sweetheart...your comments fill me up and humble me at the same time.  Sometimes I feel as if I do too little...but strive on, nevertheless.

Hugs, Sunshine
