Pink and Gold

I have written a new song; to listen to it (sung by Pauline and me), please click here:

PINK & GOLD

In my own time
In my own way
I will give thanks for every night and every day
The words that rhyme
And the tunes that flow
The life that takes us where we don’t expect to go

I bless the song
That helps to share the load
I bless the friends I meet along the rocky road
I bless the love that gives a hand to hold
I bless the summer sky at sunset when it’s glowing pink and gold
Pink and gold

The corners turned
The bridges burned
Disappointments are the lessons we have learned
The loss and pain
Will still remain
But we know the sun that sets will rise again

I bless the song
That helps to share the load
I bless the friends I meet along the rocky road
I bless the love that gives a hand to hold
I bless the summer sky at sunset when it’s glowing pink and gold
Pink and gold

And in the evening of the day
We will go down to the lake and climb into our boats and sail away
Sail away

I’ll be with you
In the hour of doubt
When you remember what it’s hard to live without
You’ll make it through
One more dark night
And in the morning we will see the newborn light

I bless the song
That helps to share the load
I bless the friends I meet along the rocky road
I bless the love that gives a hand to hold
I bless the summer sky at sunset when it’s glowing pink and gold
Pink and gold

Some diary entries … June to August 1992

Sean 1 year 001

1/6/92 – Sean is now clapping his hands – he’s very cute and clever.

2/6/92 – We bought a ‘car’ cum baby walker for Sean.

4/6/92 – Sean slept right through till 9!

7/6/92 – Sean slept right through till 8.45. Bliss, especially as it was my turn to get up with him. It was a beautiful day … in due course we all went to the Marist Fathers’ and sat on [a mat on] the grass, then Pauline got a 7 to the market and Sean and I went home … [later] Pauline and I had good games with Sean, bouncing on the spare bed. He eventually went to sleep. Continue reading
