Give Peace a Chance

I've loved John Lennon since I was nine years old. I don't know what it is about the man I like so much, maybe it's his passion, or that he stood up for what he believed in, whatever it is, he'll always have a place in my heart. I can't really listen to Imagine very much cause it makes me cry, the lyrics to his music had so much meaning in them.

Wonderful chap was he indeed... and made us all pause to consider, to ponder, to "Imagine" ...<br />
<br />
About lyrics and music that are able to reach one's soul...recently, I heard an old favorite of mine "Danny Boy" and I was moved to tear or two myself. <br />
<br />
Danny Boy<br />
<br />
O Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling<br />
From glen to glen and down the mountainside<br />
The summer's gone and all the roses falling<br />
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide. <br />
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow<br />
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow<br />
'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow<br />
O Danny boy, O Danny boy, I love you so. <br />
<br />
But if ye come and all the flowers are dying<br />
If I am dead, as dead I well may be,<br />
You'll come and find the place where I am lying<br />
And kneel and say an Ave there for me. <br />
<br />
And I shall hear, though soft, your tread above me<br />
And all my grave shall warmer, sweeter be<br />
For you will bend and tell me that you love me<br />
And I will sleep in peace until you come to me. <br />
<br />
