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

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.
