A Gentle Heart


How gentle the one
Who nurtures love
For a heart that is broken
And lost its way
And guides this love
Over darkened paths
With a light that glows
From an inner warmth
To find its way
To a saddened heart
One that has hoped
For a chance to love
To mend and grow
And let love live ...

It was raining hard on the street
As she wandered without umbrella
She had one stolen no doubt
That morning from a friend.

Running to her rescue,
I offered her a little shelter
To dry the water from her cheeks
With a gentle whisper she said ‘Yes’.

A little corner of umbrella
Against a corner of paradise
She was something of an angel
A little corner of paradise
Against a corner of umbrella
Could this moment stay forever.

Along the way, it was tender
To hear together the pretty song
Of water from the sky falling
On the top of my umbrella.

I'd have prayed at that moment
For a never ending downfall
To keep her under my refuge
Forty days and forty nights.

A little corner of umbrella
Against a corner of paradise
She was something of an angel
A little corner of paradise
Against a corner of umbrella
Could this moment stay forever.

But sadly, even in storms
Roads eventually lead to homes
Soon her's will reach that dam
At the height of my foolishness.

She tells me that she must leave
After she kindly says many thanks
And I saw her disappear very small
Into the distance, into forgetfulness.

A little corner of umbrella
Against a corner of paradise
She was something of an angel
A little corner of paradise
Against a corner of umbrella
Could this moment stay forever.

(It was song about his wife Natacha who had helped contribute to his music of Amelie. A few years earlier, he had composed the music for a 1998 film of hers, called in English 'The Dreamlife of Angels')

Thank you dear one for your kindness and for the link and the lyrics, I have loved this song for a very long time. I have it amongst my collection of music and songs by Yann Tiersen.
Such a lovely, romantic moment but it ended too soon. They both have such sweet voices.
I composed this little piece of prose for you, to hopefully remove some of the sadness from your heart.
It is raining here this morning, small raindrops splashing on my window.

Um momento especial de renovação para sua alma e seu espírito,
porque Deus, na sua infinita sabedoria, deu à natureza,
a capacidade de desabrochar a cada nova estação e a nós
capacidade de recomeçar.
Desejo a você, um final de semana cheio de amor e de alegrias.
Afinal Deus nos a oportunidade de fazer novas amizades,
ajudar mais pessoas,
aprender e ensinar novas lições,
vivenciar outras dores e suportar velhos problemas.
Sorrir por novos motivos e chorar outros,
porque amar o próximo é dar mais amparo,
orar e agradecer .
Fazer novas amizades é amadurecer um pouco mais
e olhar a vida como uma dádiva de Deus.
É ser grato, reconhecido,
forte, é ter fé acima de tudo.
Que o Senhor abençoe a você,
no doce lar Lugar onde vive!
Que você possa ver sua
família crescer e progredir,
e tenhas uma vida longa,
com saúde , paz e eterna felicidade.
Um Feliz Dia Do Amigo : Estou atrasada , mais Nunca esqueceria essa data.
Tem um mimo
na postagem fique a vontade para pegar.
Um abençoado final de semana.
Deus abençoe VOCÊ!
Beijos da amiga sempre ,Evanir.

Elia dearest friend, thank you for your lovely words, I am so pleased that you enjoyed this prose.

Thank you also for the warmth you send, it is cold here, the cold winds blow from the Southern Ocean and the temperature has dropped suddenly...
