A love song…

unnamed

I was driving along running errands the other day and one of my all time favorite songs came on the radio.

 

John Denver’s Annie’s Song.

 

He wrote this for the love of his life.  He loved the profound sense of sharing his joy and heart with others through song.  He wrote this song in honor of the beautiful lady that gave him the strength to do all the amazing things he did in his lifetime.

 

In a moment of inspiration, I imagined that it was me singing it to my pet, or, my pet was singing it to me.

 

It touched me so deeply, tears streamed down my face as I cried feeling the profound truth of this depth of connection, for all the animals I’ve loved and lost, for the joy they brought into my life, for their love.

 

Angels, guides, healers and teachers all, what a brilliant gift animals bring into our lives.

 

Call your animal(s) to you and sing it to them now, or, imagine them singing it to you.

 

Can you listen and not feel the same?

 

Here is a gorgeous video I think will take you deeper into the beauty of the song:

 

 

Annie’s Song

 

John Denver

 

You fill up my senses
Like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
Come fill me again

Come, let me love you
Let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter
Let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you
Let me always be with you
Come, let me love you
Come love me again

Let me give my life to you
Come, let me love you
Come love me again

You fill up my senses
Like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
Come fill me again

 

Remember that animals come into your life for a reason.  When we recognize, respect and revere animals for being the angels, teachers, guides and healers they truly are, they make us better human beings.

 

Our animals give us strength to do things we may not have thought we were capable of.  They comfort us, they inspire us, they touch us deeply.  They get closer to our hearts than we usually let humans, and many times we grieve their loss longer than we do the loss of human friends or family.

 

I’m sending a heartfelt prayer to you and your animals today, that you are able to love deeply, wisely and well.

 

That your animals love can break through your barriers to love you in a profoundly inspiring, healing way.

 

That you can hear their voice so they can help you be the best version of yourself possible.

 

Together we can change the world.
