The amazing gift

I'm getting ready to head off to Ancient Ways... but I have to do the big reveal. *grin* Russell commissioned one of my favorite artists, Sharon Knight - a noted soloist and lead singer for Pandemonaeon to write a song. When Russell played it for me on Tuesday I cried. I'm not sure how to share the music itself - I put a copy at http://www.conjure.com/LOG/FlowersofMySoul.mp3 but I don't know how to serve it. Anyway, the words are behind the cut tag.


Flowers of my Soul


Sharon Knight

When first I saw your dancing eyes I loved your gypsy soul
And as we walked our kindred road I came to yearn for more
Slow and deep we blossomed in the grace that love bestows
My home is where your heart resides, you are my gypsy rose

Years gone by another flower captivates my soul
A siren of adventure, you have brought my blood to boil
Your song of life has beckoned me to walk the wild side
Lush and verdant water lily I’m swept up in your tides

Your love is like a lion
Your courage never tires as you step into the fire
Roaring your devotion to the temple of desire
Your love is like a garden
Velvet petals of emotion in a heady moonlight potion
A bouquet of lovers, every one a flower of my soul

There are some who’d scorn me, and curse my roving eye
Rare are those who know that freedom keeps their love alive
But those who taste the hidden fruits of life upon their lips
Win the secret pleasures of Inanna’s greatest gift

And so we linked our hands and danced, my lily and my rose
Hand in hand with their true loves and so our garden grows
Blessed is the fearless heart that knows no compromise
Side by side we storm the gates of Paradise

Your love is like a lion
Your courage never tires as you burn with Heaven’s fire
Roaring your devotion to the temple of desire
Your love is like a garden
Velvet petals of emotion, an intoxicating potion
A bouquet of lovers, every one a flower of my soul

Take my hand, lover of my love
Let’s join in celebration of our bounty
Aphrodite’s glory shines upon us
And I am humbled by your open hearted love

Your love is like a lion
Your courage never tires as you step into the fire
Roaring your devotion to the temple of desire
Your love is like a garden
Velvet petals of emotion in a heady moonlight potion
A bouquet of lovers, every one a flower of my soul
