And Yet, The Sun Still Shines Today…


“Every life must have its sorrows and its pain
Yes it will
Where there's sunlight there are shadows and sometimes rain
When you're down and can't get up
Lay both hands on a lovin' cup
Make each teardrop like a diamond
Just look up
Just look up when storm clouds block the sun
(Just look up)
Just look up when there's nowhere left to run
(Nowhere to run)
Remember how the trees must bend
And the mighty rivers went
There's a rainbow waiting for you
Just look up
For each promise of forever
There'll be times, yes there will
When you crawl 'til you swear you've had your fill
Keep your heart right on your sleeve
Stand your ground when you want to leave
There's a love that'll last forever
Just look up
Just look up when storm clouds block the sun
(Just look up)
Just look up when there's nowhere left to run
(Got nowhere to run)
Remember how the trees must bend
And the mighty rivers went
There's a rainbow waiting for you
Just look up
(Just look up)
When you 've lost that light that guides you from despair
(From despair)
And the memories of dear ones fade with earthly cares
Know the spirits burnin' bright
Throughout all you're darkest nights
Make your life a testimony
Just Look Up
Just look up when storm clouds block the sun
(Just look up)
Just look up when there's nowhere left to run
(Nowhere to run)
Remember how the trees must bend
And the mighty rivers went
There's a rainbow waiting for you
Just look up
(Just look up)”

I am so saddened by this tragic news. I have a hard time believing it. Beautiful Marija is gone way too soon.

My heart goes out to the entire family.

Thank you for the lovely tribute.

Much love, Mon

lovely tribute Catherine, the May Fly poem springs to mind and I had to read it a few times after our call last night -- I know have it my my laptop as a reminder to what great joys can be had even in a short amount of time.

Perfect.

Thanks, Catherine.

You are the first I came to that referenced this. I had to walk away from my computer for several hours after reading it. I have no words... this is beautiful. Very sweet of you!

Catherine - a lovely and fitting tribute to a lovely woman.

Catherine I just saw this now. I have been so bad at blogging as you know.

Beautiful words. Made me cry.

It hurts so much that she is gone.
