A Gathering of Spirits

If you've grown to love this song as much as we do, maybe you'd like a copy?

 Let it go my love my truest,
Let it sail on silver wings
Life’s a twinkling that’s for certain,
But it’s such a fine thing
There’s a gathering of spirits
There’s a festival of friends
And we’ll take up where we left off
When we all meet again.

I can’t explain it. I couldn’t if I tried
How the only things we carry
Are the things we hold inside
Like a day out in the open,
Like the love we won’t forget
Like the laughter that we started
And hasn’t died down yet


Oh yah, now didn’t we
And don’t we make it shine
Aren’t we standing in the center of
Something rare and fine
Some glow like embers
Or light through colored glass
Some give it all in one great flame
Throwing kisses as they pass


Just east of Eden
But there’s heaven in our midst
And we’re never really all that far
From those we love and miss
Wade out in the water
There’s a glory all around
The wisest say there’s a 1000 ways
To kneel and kiss the ground
