Van Morrison – Real Real Gone [2007 Re-mastered].mp3

 

===============

John Bowlby would be very proud of Van Morrison:
Above is a link to the song, Real Real Gone.
And here are the lyrics:
Real real gone
I got hit by a bow and arrow
Got me down to the very marrow
And I’m real real gone

 

Real real gone
I can’t stand up by myself
Don’t you know I need your help
And I’m real real gone

 

Some people say
You can make it on your own
Oh you can make it if you try
I know better now
You can’t stand up alone
Oh baby that is why

 

I’m real real gone
I can’t stand up by myself
Don’t you know I need your help
You’re a friend of mine
And I’m real real gone

 

And Sam Cooke is on the radio
And the night is filled with space
And your fingertips touch my face
You’re a friend of mine
And I’m real real gone

 

I’m real gone
Oh lord I got hit by a bow and arrow
Got me down to the very marrow
You’re a friend of mine
And I’m real real gone
And I’m real real gone
I’m real gone

==============

Wilson Pickett said:
– “In the midnight hour, that’s
When my love comes tumbling down”
Solomon Burke said:
– “If you need me, why don’t you call me”
James Brown said:
– “When you’re tired of what you got, try me”
Gene Chandler said:
– “There’s a rainbow in my soul”

 

===============

 
A Rabbit Noticed My Condition

 

I was sad one day and went for a walk;
I sat in a field.
A rabbit noticed my condition and came near.

 

It often does not take more than that to help at times –
to just be close to creatures who
are so full of knowing,
so full of love
that they don’t–
chat,
they just gaze with
their marvelous understanding.
–St. John of the Cross

 

===============

I love you,
Not only for what you are
But for what I am
When I am with you.

 

I love you,
Not only for what
You have made of yourself
But for what
You are making of me.

 

I love you,
For the part of me
That you bring out;
I love you,
For putting your hand
Into my heaped-up heart
And passing over
All the foolish, weak things
That you can’t help
Dimly seing there,
And for drawing out
Into the light
All the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find.

 

I love you because you
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern
But a temple;
Out of works
Of my every day
Not a reproach
But a song.
– Roy Croft

==============

“Oh, the comfort – the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person – having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~D. Craik, 1859

==============

“We are one, after all, you and I, together we suffer, together exist, and forever will recreate each other.” ~ Teilhard de Chardin

==============

Godfrey turned his head towards her, and their eyes met, dwelling in that meeting without any movement on either side. That quiet mutual gaze of a trusting husband and wife is like the first moment of rest or refuge from a great weariness or a great danger—not to be interfered with by speech or action which would distract the sensations from the fresh enjoyment of repose.

From the classic novel Silas Marner
