Will You Be There?

Hold Me
Like The River Jordan
And I Will Then Say To Thee
You Are My Friend

Carry Me
Like You Are My Brother
Love Me Like A Mother
Will You Be There?

When weary
Tell Me Will You Hold Me
When Wrong, Will You Scold Me
When Lost Will You Find Me?

But They Told Me
A Man Should Be Faithful
And Walk When Not Able
And Fight Till The End
But I'm Only Human

Everyone's Taking Control Of Me
Seems That The World's
Got A Role For Me
I'm So Confused
Will You Show It To Me
You'll Be There For Me
And Care Enough To Bear Me

(Hold Me) Show me
(Lay Your Head Lowly) Told me
(Softly Then Boldly) Yeah
(Carry Me There) I'm only human

(Lead Me) Hold me
(Love Me And Feed Me) Yeeaah
(Kiss Me And Free Me) Yeah
(I Will Feel Blessed) I'm only human

(Carry) Carry
(Carry Me Boldly) Carry
(Lift Me Up Slowly) Yeah
(Carry Me There) I'm only human

(Save Me) Need me
(Heal Me And Bathe Me) Lift me up lift me up
(Softly You Say To Me)
(I Will Be There) I will be there

(Lift Me) Lonely
(Lift Me Up Slowly)
(Carry Me Boldly) Yeah
(Show Me You Care) Will you be there?

(Hold Me) Woo!
(Lay Your Head Lowly) I get lonely sometimes
(Softly Then Boldly) I get lonely yeah yeah
(Carry Me There) Will you be there?

(Need Me) Woo!
(Love Me And Feed Me) Lift me up pull me up
(Kiss Me And Free Me) Lift me up sometime oh some time
(I Will Feel Blessed) Blessed

In Our Darkest Hour
In My Deepest Despair
Will You Still Care?
Will You Be There?
In My Trials
And My Tribulations
Through Our Doubts
And Frustrations
In My Violence
In My Turbulence
Through My Fear
And My Confessions
In My Anguish And My Pain
Through My Joy And My Sorrow
In The Promise Of Another Tomorrow
I'll Never Let You Part
For You're Always In My Heart.

He had the talent to express himself in ways I never will. In ways most people can't. I have always loved this song, related to this song, and related to him through this song. Right now though I cannot listen to it without seeing his body being taken to that helicopter and lifted into it and then flown away. I don't know if I'll ever be able to hear this song again without picturing that and feeling despair for all those who loved him and for him and all that he went through in his troubled life.

The Dance

Consciousness expresses itself through creation. This world we live in is the dance of the creator. Dancers come and go in the twinkling of an eye but the dance lives on. On many an occassion when I am dancing, I have felt touched by something sacred. In those moment,s I felt my spirit soar and become one with everything that exists.
I become the stars and the moon. I become the lover and the beloved. I become the victor and the vanquished. I become the master and the slave. I become the singer and the song. I become the knower and the known. I keep on dancing and then it is the eternal dance of creation. The creater and creation merge into one wholeness of joy. I keep on dancing...and dancing...and dancing, until there is only...the dance.
