I hope you dance

I have fallen in love
with the song
of Lee Ann Womack

"i hope you dance"

I heard this sometime back
it was like a face in a crowd.. liked it ..moved along
the face appeared again..became familiar

this time when i heard it in Light FM in Newyork
the music got into my ears
travelled all the way by AirIndia
and it is here to stay with me
...making me hopeless.... and hopeful

It is the melody and voice which have captured me.
the lyric too has gone into my heart

here it is

"I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake
But it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out reconsider
I hope you dance
I hope you dance"

Womack's bio says she learnt her lesson
"between the blush of a new love and the bruises of a broken heart"

One of her song says it by its title
" twenty years and two husbands ago"

Her songs are for"everyone who’s ever loved, lost, and learned hard-earned lessons and lived to tell about it, including the singer herself and this poor blogger".

E- Love

Inbox is full
mails galore
jokes and junk
news alerts

i go down the list
racing for that one
the heart-stopper

i kiss the screen
smile and whistle
read and relax
savour and cherish

spirit soaring high
touching the moon
faith restored
feeling reinvigorated

I need a cafe
double expresso
to respond and resonate
to my E-love in cyberspace
