A Song to Dream By...







This song is how I know my 5 Angels
felt for me when they were still living...
And maybe how they still feel for me.

One couldn't miss the deep adoration and abiding love
in their eyes when they looked at me.

And it sounds something any pitiful stray
would feel about a new and loving Human Friend,
when that stray is taken away from
facing starvation, that anxious fear on the street...
the painful, empty tummy,
drawn, thirsty,
with no real protection from
the darker among our Species...

When they are finally fed,
loved,
embraced,
cared for,
brushed,
adored...

even feral cats show this love.

So many people can't understand this...

They don't understand that
it is as real,
and as deep,
as anything human.





You Needed Me -- Anne Murray

I cried a tear, you wiped it dry
I was confused, you cleared my mind
I sold my soul, you bought it back for me
and held me up, and gave me dignity
somehow, you needed me!

You gave me strength, to stand alone again
to face the world, out on my own again
you put me high upon a pedestal
so high that I could almost see eternity
you needed me, you needed me!

Can't believe it's you, I can't believe it's true
I needed you and you were there
Though I'll never leave, why should I leave?
I'd be a fool, when I finally found someone who really cares!
Who really cares!

You held my hand ~ you held my hand
when it was cold ~ when it was cold
when I was lost ~ when I was lost
you took me home ~ you took me home
You put me high upon a pedestal
so high that I could almost see eternity

you needed me, you needed me . . .
. . . you needed me,
you needed me . . .
