Every Love You Find

Another new song, from the songwriter group. Man o man, am I grateful to them and their continued support and encouragement.

Hope you like it…

EVERY LOVE YOU FIND
I don’t have the words to say
That could take your pain away
So, let us bear this silence, just us two

But when it comes my time to go
I’ll leave this wish for you to know
A benediction, written just for you.

May the valley that you cross lead to the mountain you will climb
May the wave that knocks you down ease into gentle evening tide
May the coldest night alone, melt inside a warm sunshine.
And may every tear you lose come back in every love you find.

There are times of grief so deep
That the soul slips off to sleep
A wall of pain to tall that we can’t see.

So, pack these feeble words away
Save them for another day
Until what they say has come to be.

May the valley that you cross lead to the mountain you will climb
May the wave that knocks you down ease into gentle evening tide
May the coldest night alone, melt inside a warm sunshine.
And may every tear you lose come back in every love you find.

We all need a little hope
To keep us strong and help us cope
Words cannot heal on their own
But they can light the way back home

May the valley that you cross lead to the mountain you will climb
May the wave that knocks you down ease into gentle evening tide
May the coldest night alone, melt inside a warm sunshine.
And may every tear you lose come back in every love…
Every love you find.

(Open D, Capo 4)
