Nobody’s Crying

I’m borrowing a little Patty Griffin today.
It’s from her song: Nobody’s Crying.

I’m dedicating it to someone very special
I miss her alot.

Not half as much as she misses herself perhaps.

She’s chosen a life of extremes for right now.
I wish I could say that nobody is cryin’.

But alas, there are times those who love her do.

This is dedicated to one I love.

May you dream you are dreaming, in a warm soft bed
And may the voices inside you that fill you with dread
Make the sound of thousands of angels instead
Tonight where you might be laying your head

I wish you well
On your way to the wishing well…

Still have this secret hope…

Somewhere on the steepest slope
There’s an endless rope
And nobody’s crying
Nobody’s crying
Nobody’s crying

Lyrics by Patty Griffin~excerpted from Nobody’s Crying

When I am among the trees,
especially the willows and the honey locust,
equally the beech, the oaks and the pines,
they give off such hints of gladness,
I would almost say that they save me, and daily.

I am so distant from the hope of myself,
in which I have goodness, and discernment,
and never hurry through the world
but walk slowly, and bow often.

Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out, “Stay awhile.”
The light flows from their branches.

And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say,
“and you too have come
into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine.”
