make hope...

this is for Mark and Sara, who get married today. i so wish i was there in Nashville to celebrate this day with them, but i have to settle for being there in spirit. and that, i definitely am. as an engagement present mark bought sara a print that she loved, which reminded her of Chagall. so this seemed an appropriate way to honour the day ...

i've posted the weepies here before and i know i will again. awesome band. thanks to gail for gifting them to me. everyone should have this band in their collection. by law.

so, without further ado, _much_ love to mark and sara. may happiness be yours for many many days to come dear friends...
and may love bless you both.

Painting by Chagall by the Weepies.

Thunder rumbles in the distance, a quiet intensity
I am willful, your insistence is tugging at the best of me
You're the moon, I'm the water
You're Mars, calling up Neptune's daughter

Sometimes rain that's needed falls
We float like two lovers in a painting by Chagall
All around is sky and blue town
Holding these flowers for a wedding gown
We live so high above the ground, satellites surround us.

I am humbled in this city
There seems to be an endless sea of people like us
Wakeful dreamers, I pass them on the sunlit streets
In our rooms filled with laughter
We make hope from every small disaster

Everybody says "you can't, you can't, you can't, don't try."
Still everybody says that if they had the chance they'd fly like we do.
