“We embrace the unexpected 

Of life’s great mystery

Standing in acceptance

Is when we are set free.

Free to love you through our pain

Free to love you through our tears

Free to love you through the passing of our years.

Earth and the Sky, Earth and the Sky 

Earth and the Sky, Earth and the Sky 

Nothing lasts forever but the Earth and the Sky.”

-- from “Earth and Sky” by Buddy Tabor

“When he walked, he walked in Beauty

in the footsteps that God himself had laid,

and when the wind blows,

where does it come from,

and like the soul of man where does it go?

When he sang, he sang in his own way

God would smile and touch his heart

Now we must endure the separation

But someday soon we will not be apart.”

-- from “She Walked in Beauty” by Buddy
Tabor (with pronoun change)

“Love is the reason we happened at all

It paid for the damage we done

And it bought us the freedom to fall into grace

On our way to our place in the sun.

Every hard-rocking wreck on the highway

Every heart broken rule of the road

Every true thing we wrote on the wind is still singing

Love is the last thing to go.”

-- from “the Last Thing To Go” by Kris Kristofferson
