Song Lyric Sunday

Good morning to everyone in the land of blog; I hope you’re having a great Sunday (or will have a great Sunday, depending where you are in the World). Another week has rolled around and it’s time again for Song Lyric Sunday, brought to us by the honourable Jim Adams.

Song Lyric Sunday

Goooooood Moooooooooorning Blogland! How are we all? Whatever you’re up to today enjoy it to the max because it’s back to work tomorrow but for now, sit back, relax and enjoy Song Lyric Sunday. I love this once a week challenge where we can connect with other bloggers and discover new music – why not play along? Brought to us by the TVtastic Jim Adams, it’s a must for all music lovers and, this week, for all gogglebox enthusiasts too as our prompt is ‘song from a TV show’

This lovely poem that has such a beautiful sentiment is from another Lisa K – how could I not share it with you all :O)

I follow Noah and some of his poetry is extraordinary. This is a great example of his work and, when I read it, it really touched me – I hope that you’ll like it too :O)

I came across this amazing poem and had to share it with you – it resonated with me on many levels and I think it might do the same for many of you…….

I’ve lied, hurt, broke & tarnished the loveliest soul. Don’t be fooled, this actions have been practiced on me. I’ve given, saved, been there for these souls in the toughest times.
