Our Love Songs

Our Love songs are a bit dark, but when we hear these two songs, our hands squeeze, our eyes always met, and we smile those secret smiles....the ones that say 'I love you' and 'We are so lucky' and 'I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat.'....the ones that make our kids roll their eyes and say, "They are talking without words again!"

It's Valentine's Day, but we don't do anything special for it because, here's where it gets sappy folks, every day with my husband is a day we celebrate our love. I know. You can put your puke bowls, away, I'm done!

These two songs are ours. And in honor of this universal day of love, I'm posting them for my husband. I have loved him for 18 years, more than half my life, and I know I have been blessed.

"Far Side Banks of Jordan"

I'll Admit My Steps Are Growing Wearier Each Day
Still I've Got A Certain Journey On My Mind
Lures Of This Old World Have Ceased To Make Me Want To Stay
My One Regret Is Leaving You Be-hind
If It Proves To Be His Will That I Am First To Cross
And Somehow I've A Feeling It Will Be
When It Comes Your Turn To Travel
Likewise Don't Feel Lost
For I Will Be The First One That You'll See
I'll Be Waiting On The Far Side Banks Of Jordan
I'll Be Sitting Drawing Pictures In The Sand
When I See You Coming I Will Rise Up With A Shout
And Come Running Through The Shallow Water Reaching For Your Hand
Through This Life We've Laboured Long
To Earn Our Meagre Fare
It's Brought Us Trembling Hands And Failing Eyes
So I'll Just Rest There On That Shore
And Turn My Eyes Away Until You Come
Then We'll See Paradise

"I Will Follow You Into The Dark"

Love of mine some day you will die
But I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark
No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of a spark
If Heaven and Hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the No's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark
