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

Light of Love

SettingSun Mar10  Do you ever wonder how there can be so many love songs out there, yet people keep writing more? Surely we will reach saturation point, and run out of ideas or melodies one day? That’s not a new idea … and sometimes the mind ponders such thoughts. But the heart seem beyond ideas. It just keeps on singing … And if you’re lucky, sometimes a beautiful new love song bursts forth.

Every time I write a love song I aspire to it being my ultimate one. I think this one is.  Hope I get to sing it for you soon, and that you’ll do what everyone else seems to do – sing the chorus with me, thinking of someone dear, and the timeless nature of love …

Light of Love

If I couldn’t see you in the light of the moon
Or the glow of the stars in the Milky Way above
If I couldn’t see you even in the brightest sun at noon
I would still see you in the light of love

In the light of love, see you in the light of love
In the light of love, see you in the light of love

If you forget to brush your hair or you wear those funny shoes
If you don’t understand my feelings when the going’s rough
If you leave your dirty clothes and stuff across the bathroom floor
You’re beautiful. And I can only see you in the light of love

Don’t tend to see crazy me in an aura so bright
I go too far, don’t go far enough, can’t seem to get the balance right
Then you come along with your great big heart, embracing all that stuff
Thank you for seeing me in the light of love

When we cannot see each other in the light of the moon
Or the glow of the stars in the Milky Way above
When we can’t see each other even in the brightest sun at noon
I will still see you, you will still see me
We will be together in the light of love

In the light of love, see you in the light of love
In the light of love, see you in the light of love

Timeless Moments

Rush, rush, rush … it’s crazy; cheap muzac blaring in the mall, cars bumping each other in overcrowded carparks, piles of junk no one actually needs, too many sales people …  insanity.  It’s high time I had a timeless moment.

Radha with Ruby webWhich brings to mind one such moment I experienced with my grand daughter; timelessness refreshing me, opening that moment, and my little grand daughter there in it with me, as a beautiful new beginning.  I wanted to capture this in song so I could relive it over and over. And as a songwriter, my dream is that  somehow my song will transport you in a timeless moment too …

I’d love to hear about a special moment you have experienced – click ‘Comment‘ (below), and tell us about it. That way, if enough readers comment, we’ll all get to enjoy quite a few! Here’s one from me for  starters …

Beautiful New Beginning © Radha Sahar

The summer heat is fading. She says
‘Gran – it’s gardening weather’
We plant some kale and cavalo
Gather the pumpkins in
She’s humming a sweet little song
There’s a feeling of forever
We’ve all we need in a morning fresh and new

This is life how it’s meant to be
Simple contentment and harmony
And if I go tomorrow she’ll remember me
In a peaceful autumn day with not a breath of wind
As a wide blue sky sings
A beautiful new beginning

We come indoors, wash our hands
And while Gran prepares dinner
She draws a picture of the sky
With a rainbow in the corner
The sun is bright in her world
It warms the coming winter
We’re kindred souls together on this earth

This is life how it’s meant to be …

She’s my little pumpkin, now asleep
I gaze at her skin – it seems to glow
She’s snuggled in a soft, pink rug
On the floor beside my bed
There’s a shiver in the air
I pull her covers over
She’ll be going home tomorrow bathed and fed

This is life how it’s meant to be
Simple contentment and harmony
And if I go tomorrow she’ll remember me
In a peaceful autumn day with not a breath of wind
Not a breath …
She is my beautiful new beginning

A New Take on Valentine’s Day

valentineYour partner is not into it? You don’t have a partner – (and you’re not looking either)? So what?$#!! This is a day to smell the flowers, to even eat a little bit of dark chocolate … and to write a ditty just for the heck of it.  So you wrote it in a card and sent it to yourself? Good on you! If you’re not the ditty-writing type, here’s one of mine you are welcome to croon out to the night air, send to a lusciously desired love or, more realistically, to read to your partner snoring in the chair …

I’m planning to read it during my set at Lily’s Ranch House on Valentine’s day – it’s a great place to enjoy being real, so they won’t mind. The music is  fun whatever comes, and the atmosphere makes you not want to go. Peter Leith and friends sing and play, and Baby Boomer Girl is strutting her stuff there quite often on a Friday night too: Lily’s Ranch House, 137 Fairfield Road, Levin, Tel: 06 3670251

You’ve got a couple of days to write a love poem or song, and we would love to read it. Post your masterpiece via the ‘Comments’ facility below – and wait for the accolades, and maybe some romance, to pour in!

A Chocolate Rose

Tis said St Valentine fervently prayed
To serve a world divinely made
His deepest prayers to the almighty
Were also heard by Aphrodite
So he was blessed from high above with
A double dose of divine love!

What to do with the overflow?
So much love and nowhere to go!
(No planes or cars on air or street;
He only had two sandalled feet)
Luckily Cupid rescued the fellow
Providing wings and a bow and arrow

Now every year around Beltane
The forces of love conspire to inflame
Each heart to soar and seek a mate
And you, my love, I ask to take
Will you be my Valentine
To share with me the love divine?

Would you I pledge my life this day?
Or rather you fancy an evening’s play?
(For love is love whether lofty or sporty
Long live God and Aphrodite!)
My love! To sport in tryst with you – Yes!
To St Val – a chocolate rose or two!
