Story

I was told that our friends, John and Mary were going to be celebrating their 30th anniversary.  So, as I was driving back to Minnesota from a 2 week stay at our new house in Utah, I started writing a song for them.  Got the first verse and chorus done, played it for Ken, who said it was pretty "mushy"... sigh....  so, I defaulted for the anniversary party to another song...but this one stuck with me and I completed it for KEN!   I sang it as a surprise at our last house concert in St Paul.  He was totally taken off guard....and although he still thinks it's mushy, he added a beautiful guitar part to it!

Lyrics

The Journey….

It’s been quite a journey

This life I’ve spent with you

Everything that’s come our way

We seem to make it through

   Through life’s uncharted pathways

   The pleasant and unknown

   We’ve learned to guide each other

   Our love has ever grown

           We can never know

           What comes around the bend

           What comes with the next sunrise

           Or with the season’s end

           One thing is for certain……Our love will never end.

 We both had some rough edges

That have smoothed out over time

You brought out the best in me

So patient, warm  and kind

      As we’ve grown together

      Like roots that are entwined

      We’ve become the very best of friends

      Now watch our spirits shine

           We can never know

           What comes around the bend

           What comes with the next sunrise

           Or with the season’s end

           One thing is for certain……Our love will never end.

Now look where life has led us

To this place beyond compare

Mountains that surround us

And nature fills the air

     When they write our story

     Not sure what they will say

    We worked a lot and had some fun

    And sang along the way….

           We can never know

           What comes around the bend

           What comes with the next sunrise

           Or with the season’s end

           One thing is for certain……Our love will never end.
