A Letter to Danny - April 16, 2012

My Darling:

I dreamed of you last night.  In my dream, we were young again and we were fighting.  I don't know what are fight was about but I told you if you wanted out of our marriage just tell me.  I said this, but what I really wanted was for you to take me in your arms and tell me that you loved me.  In my dream, you left the house and I didn't know where you were.  You came home late and just went to bed.  I must have been sleeping too because the next thing I remember you waking and getting out of bed.  I fell back to sleep and awoke when I heard you in the kitchen.  I walked in to talk to you, but then I woke up.  That has been three hours ago that I woke, but the hurt is still in my heart as I type this.  I just wanted to go back to sleep so I could be with you, even if we were not getting along.  I just wanted to be with you.

I decided that perhaps that is why I can't see you or feel your presence.  Perhaps it would just be too painful for me to have you so near, but not to be able to touch you.

I love you Danny.  I miss you so much.  I guess all will be as it is meant to be rather I want it or not.

I'll love you far beyond the 12th of never.

How Wonderful

How Wonderful
How wonderful that the man from Galilee
Who healed the lame and caused the blind to see
He who called the dead to stand and walk again
That He who was born was to die for every man

Oh How wonderful,
That he loves me.

It was for me that in Gethsemane
He cried.
It was for me on a cross on Calvary
He died.
It was for me that He washed away my sins
Tore open gates of Hell that I might live again.

It was for me
Because He loved me.

How wonderful; He who caused the dumb to talk.
That He who told the ill “lift up your bed and walk.”
He who raised His hand and calmed the stormy sea.
Then with his love, He calms the storms in me.

Oh, How wonderful.
That he loves me.

Repeat Chorus:

How wonderful. That He loves me.
