During the last few weeks of the waiting time, I wrote a song for Grace.  It's called "Across the World," and I wanted to share it on the web site.  I know that I'm not a great singer (or guitar player for that matter), but I think that the song sums up what Maria and I were feeling.  You'll find a clickable ladybug below the lyrics that will start the download of an MP3 file.  You can use Windows Media Player to listen to it after the download is complete (approx. 2.5 mb).

 

Across the World

 

Little baby, we’ve been searching for

Half way across the world.  Do you

Feel the love that we feel for you?

Can you know us now?  Oh,

Half way across the world.

 

It was meant to be that you would be our child, and

Come into our lives.  From the

Beginning of time we knew you’d be the one

To fill our hearts with joy, Oh

Fill our hearts with joy.

 

From a photograph we saw you,

With soulful, gentle eyes.

You melt us with your beautiful face.  What does it

Look like when you cry?

We’ve waited so long to meet you.  Soon we’ll

Fly into the sky.  The

Wonderful ones that have cared for you,

Our hellos are their goodbyes.

 

Little baby, we’ve been searching for

Half way across the world.  Do you

Feel the love that we feel for you?

Can you know us now?  Oh,

Half way across the world.
