Warm Hearted Friends

Patricia & Radha chum BVsYou know the ones … who stick by you … who smile, hug and comfort you … I wrote this song to thank you. It’s going on my album. And, yes, the album is still happening. Having blogged last September that I was in full swing recording, my dear, sweet, wonderful dad passed away.

I needed you then, friends, and you were there. Thank you for your acceptance while I retreated into myself for months, adjusting to dad’s departure. He was my hero and inspiration, and I came to a grinding halt missing him … Dad sang in a male choir. Music and humour spilled out of him constantly. So I knew he would want me to sing again and to finish my album and share the joy with you all.

At last my energy to sing came back. (That’s my warm hearted friend, Patricia with me in the photo. We’re about to sing together …). I’m recording again with Steve. Feels great.

Nothing comes in ones … especially warm hearted friends – I’m blessed to have many. My projects don’t seen to come one at a time either. I’m now working in my painting space, getting ready for a third exhibition. Plus I’ve undertaken a year’s study – Maori Visual Arts – at Te Wananga O Aotearoa (Maori University) – loving it! It’s all or nothing with life for me it seems! Now to thank you all, dear ones in this world and the next …

Warm Hearted Friends
Sometimes I shiver on a cold winter’s day
Friends, when you’re around I never feel that way
Barely need the heater, forget to light the fire
You radiate such a great glow!

Thank you, my warm hearted friends
You light up my life, keep the sun shining through
Thank goodness for warm hearted friends
Warm hearted friends like you

You make the world a better place. I wanna do that too
To shine a light together – a little spark or two
Along with you I wanna do some good – is that naive?
You keep me believing that I can

Thank you, my warm hearted friends …

“My Goodness!” you say – and well you may;
Coz goodness is your middle name!
I know you’re sure to reply that we’re all good inside.
All the more reason for me to say …

Look around the room – we’re only here for a while
Time enough to give someone a hug or a smile
Time enough to thank someone for the little things they do
That is why I‘m here thanking you

Thank you, my warm hearted friends
You light up my life, keep the sun shining through
Thank goodness for warm hearted friends
Warm hearted friends like you

Warm Hearted Friends

Your response as I exude gratitude to you as a warm hearted friend?
Chandan Jutta Yana & Rubys Hairdo SM “My goodness!
Most appropriate – you are full of it. Pat yourself on the back and enjoy it.

“Thank goodness!” I reply, thanking you … (the embodiment of goodness itself).

It follows that you also have many good friends. And you’ll need a song to thank them all.  There are so many good people out there to thank, and everyone needs a song now and then. You can thank me for writing this one if you like … remember, it’s for you! Thank you all.

It’s so cosy here coz of you
It’s that warmth and cheer in the little things you do
It’s so cosy here, sunny too
The sweetness in happiness depends
On having warm hearted friends like you
