In the spirit of this blog I want share you with a song that was recently sent to me by Jim Angus, a Canadian songwriter. As you listen to this you are welcome to close your eyes and just hear the song or keep them open and allow the images to complement the experience.

Enjoy!

Now in this moment… in this heartbeat
in this magical place
Now to feel the rhythm and see the sunrise
for the very first time
Now where the games come crashing down
Now where the masks fall to the ground
Now when I open up my heart
oh how I love you
Now when I see you as you are
you’re so beautiful

Now in the stillness… I awaken
and wipe the sleep from my eyes
yes Now like the rivers that flow
take my hand and we’ll go
beyond the shackles of time
Now where the games come crashing down
Now where the masks fall to the ground
Now when I open up my heart
I just want to love you, love you
Now like the heavens brightest stars
you’re so beautiful

Now as I look into your eyes
don’t want to think about tomorrow
just want to leave the pain behind
and there’s so much I want to tell you
before the magic slips away
and even though I rehearsed a thousand times
I’m always unprepared
… for this moment
… your gentle heartbeat
… in this forever
… in this magical place
… called Now
