Do you Yearn for Spring Sunshine during the Winter Months

Missing You...


Where have you been all this time
being apart has been such a crime

I waited for you far too long
in your absence things felt wrong

The skip in my step went away
I hope this time you plan to stay

Life without you pains me so
I love you sunshine please don't go

Today when looking to the skies
tears welled up within my eyes

I saw you Mr.ball of fire
your my sun and great desire.

Our beloved ball of fire is deserting us today and leaving us clouds and rainfall. Since we have had a week of perfect weather so that is okay. As I listen to Tupelo Honey, I am thinking of skipping work and laying around with the old songs playing extra loud.

Have a great day Twin.

Today when looking to the skies tears welled up within my eyes. This should teach you never to look directly into the sun :-P Happy Spring!! Peace!! Tom

Hi Hyphenbird. I love Van Morrison and loved that this particular video showed nature and sun scenes. I know what you mean by wanting to play hookie when you hear a good song like this. Makes you just wanna have fun and go down memory lane. Hope the sun came back out today:)

...I was having a 'pint' the other day with Van the Man - and as soon as I mentioned your name he became breathless and took another sip of Guinness and then he started to sing "Brown-eyed girl" - well the point of this story - it doesn't matter what color of eyes you have - because you make all 'colors' beautiful - and you have 'colored' my life with beauty, kindness and your friendship - I sit here actually listening to reggae music with the great Toots and the Maytals - but I think back to that moment in the pub with Van the Man also singing 'Did I tell you lately that I love you" - well these are also the sentiments of your Canadian Prince, as he kneels in front of you, the epi-man!!!
