When the River Meets the Sea

When the River Meets the Sea

(Words by Paul Williams)

For my sister

When the mountain touches the valley

All the clouds are taught to fly

As our souls will leave this land most peacefully

Though our minds be filled with questions

In our hearts we'll understand

When the river meets the sea

Like a flower that has blossomed

In the dry and barren sand

We are born and born again

most gracefully

Plus the winds of time will take us
With a sure and steady hand

When the river meets the sea

Sonia Jean

July 28, 1945 - April 9, 2010

Thanks everyone. It was something I needed to do before I could continue with my blog.

Hi Deb,
Mary Kearsey here.. I've been following your Blog since Marg told me about it. I am thrilled and inspired... your interests are so similar to mine and I am trying to dabble in photography, but have much to learn. One day I hope we can meet and maybe explore together when I revisit Corner Brook. I love the way in which you honored Tone.. she was special and I know how much you miss her.
