Song of the First Bonding

Post by Eruannlass » Sat Aug 09, 2008 2:29 pm

Song of the First Bonding


Look up at the bright stars,
shining in the night sky.

Count all that you see, Child.
Count all that you see.
Our love, it burns brighter
than all the light
in that vast canopy.

Look down to the grass stalks,
reaching up, tall and high.

Touch all that you see, Child.
Touch all that you see.
Our love, it grows stronger
than all the lush grasses
growing for thee.

Every sand grain,
upon every shore –
holds our love for you, Child.
Holds our love for you.

Every sweet wind,
coming in from the sea –
brings our love to you, Child.
Brings our love to you.

Always shall it be, Child.
Always shall it be.
 
This is another song Rowan gave to me.  It's a traditional one, sung by parents to their newborn children.

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves we find in the sea

Thank you for sharing this, Eruannlass.  It is very beautiful, and speaks of a love which is profound and limitless.
"The time of Moonsheen has passed. The noontide of the dominion of Men is waning. Soon will come the era of Starshine. And the ages will partake of both; the grace of Moonsheen and the glory of the Days of the Sun" -Mormeril

You are most welcome, Ellenar.  :)

Anytime that Rowan has shared a memory of his parents with me, that feeling of profound, limitless love comes through in the telling.  This is one of the areas where he has the greatest amount of recall when we are able to do "memory work" together.  This song came through in a deeper trance session, and when it was over and he realized I wrote it down, he was thanking me for almost 20 minutes straight.  This one means a lot to him.  He had no problem with me posting it, because he felt that it may bring joy to others as well.
