Follow Your Heart; Search Your Soul.

Updated on December 30, 2014

The most important lesson I have learnt in life is to be true to myself only then can we reach high for those long awaited dreams. Today's song choice is a favourite of mine and has been since a very young age.

Madi 11 years old sings 'Hwyangerdd Mair' a popular Welsh hymn.

Yet again upon us

Another brand New Year;

Resolutions awakening

Horizons oh so clear..

x

Chorus:

Follow your heart

Search your soul;

And only then

Will you feel truly whole.

x

Morning has broken

The dawn's peering through;

Daybreak's message

So precious and true.

x

Chorus:

Follow your heart

Search your soul;

And only then

Will you feel truly whole.

x

Noon is a glimpse

Of a dream to come true;

A dream so precious

Through and through.

x

Chorus:

Follow your heart

Search your soul;

And only then

Will you feel truly whole.

x

Evening approaches

So safe in our hearts;

That dream is ours

Never to part.

x

Chorus:

Follow your heart

Search your soul;

And only then

Will you feel truly whole.

x

On this brand new dawn

Cherish that beam;

It's now time to live

That long awaited dream.

x

Chorus:

Follow your heart

Search your soul;

And only then

Will you feel truly whole.

Cascading wonders

A whole new world to perceive

Each wondrous treasure.

Source

A dream

Tantalising

Adventures yet untold

Each trepidation cast aside

Birdsongs to surely lead to paradise

Mother nature stands tall and strong

Follow that path so true

Your destiny

A dream.

Source

Reach for the stars

Each story untold

Search your heart

Oh to find that dream

Life, love and laughter

United we stand

Tasting life's beauty

I trust in my faith so strong

Onwards and upwards

Nearer and nearer

Sweet journey of truth.

Whatever your dreams whatever your aspirations I hope they transpire for you in this coming brand New Year.

Lots of love to you all friends old and new from my little corner of Wales.

Eddy.

      I was really too late in reading this one Eiddwen, the year has already started. It was something else though. If it was still 2014 then it would give me hope for the New Year. I voted this up, shared and Tweeted it.

      Exquisite words to decorate my day!

      I have been missing your delightful poetries on life.

      You are a shining light amidst the dreadful headline news.

      Most days I turn the TV off and read beautiful words of love

      and new beginnings.

      Eddy, your fortitude stands out like a beacon in the dark of night.

      You will never know when your words touch a frail heart and give it new life.

      You are back where you belong - among friends.

      Thank you,

      DJ.
