Poems, Prayers and Promises

John Denver Poems Prayers and Promises - YouTube

Iíve been lately thinking about my lifeís time, all the things Iíve done and how itís been.
And I canít help believing in my own mind, I know Iím gonna hate to see it end.
Iíve seen a lot of sunshine, slept out in the rain, spent a night or two all on my own.
Iíve known my ladyís pleasures, had myself some friends, spent a time or two in my own home.

I have to say it now, itís been good life all in all, itís really fine to have a chance to hang around.
and lie there by the fire and watch the evening tire
while all my friends and my old lady sit and pass a pipe around.
And talk of poems and prayers and promises and things that we believe in.
How sweet it is to love someone, how right it is to care.
How long itís been since yesterday, what about tomorrow
and what about our dreams and all the memories we share?

Days they pass so quickly now, the nights are seldom long.
Time around me whispers when itís cold.
The changes somehow frightens me, still I have to smile. It turns me on to think of growing old.
For though my lifeís been good to me thereís still so much to do.
So many things my mind has never known.
Iíd like to raise a family, Iíd like to sail away and dance across the mountains on the moon.

I have to say it now, itís been good life all in all, itís really fine to have a chance to hang around.
and lie there by the fire and watch the evening tire
while all my friends and my old lady sit and pass a pipe around.
And talk of poems and prayers and promises and things that we believe in.
How sweet it is to love someone, how right it is to care.
How long itís been since yesterday, what about tomorrow
and what about our dreams and all the memories we share?

(written by John Denver)

Watch, read, and learn. This has a lot of info in it to answer your question.

FINALLY - The TRUTH about the John Denver Accident!!! - YouTube

Out of curiosity, what does his death have to do with the song I shared being nice, or is it just intellectually interesting to know?

It's good to remember the past and dream of things to come. In our busy lives we can easily forget where we've came from and where we want to go. It's easy to forget the things and the people that have touched our lives. Life is a song and we should sing it each and every day.

RRRGh!! Life is not bad, I'm not homeless or anything bad. My back has healed enough I can find new work again, but I just feel all sniffy and sitting here feeling kinda bad about me. It's pathetic to feel bad like this so I will try to focus on making progress and go to bed soon.

There will be an answer, let it be.
