Happy St. Patrick's Day

No matter how you spent the day, whether you celebrate St. Patrick's Day or not, I wanted to pass along the Traditional Irish Blessing which is often used as a toast:

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May God be with you and bless you;
May you see your 's .
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings,
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.

Hi sexyldy1000.

thanks for the lovely song lyrics.

I like reading song lyrics... it tells me that you are a 'music' person... when people ask me if I am a pet person... I say no, I am a 'people' person... I like music, books and melonlicious women, not necessarily in that order...

Perhaps, you can read this lyrics... and, maybe you will like them...

Aqualung - "Brighter Than Sunshine"

I never understood before
I never knew what love was for
My heart was broke, my head was sore
What a feeling

Tied up in ancient history
I didn't believe in destiny
I look up, you're standing next to me
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
Brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine
And it's brighter than sunshine

I never saw it happening
I'd given up and given in
I just couldn't take the hurt again
What a feeling

I didn't have the strength to fight
but suddenly you seemed so right
Me and you
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
It's brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don't care
I'm yours…

Thank you but what I posted was not a song,
However, I am very much a music person as I had indicated in a previous post.
I really liked the song lyrics you sent.
I can always count on you to bring new songs to my attention.
The word 'sunshine' holds a particular special meaning to me. Perhaps I will have to write another post about it.
