I have chosen James Blunt and Monsters. The video is beautiful, it was made with his father.The tears are real. I love this song and this video.

About the siger.

James Blunt (born James Hillier Blount; 22 February 1974) is an English singer, songwriter and musician. A former reconnaissance officer in the Life Guards regiment of the British Army, he served under NATO during the 1999 Kosovo War. After leaving the military, he rose to fame in 2004 with the release of his debut album Back to Bedlam, achieving worldwide fame with the singles “You’re Beautiful” and “Goodbye My Lover“.

About the song

James Blunt’s father Charles, himself a kidney donor, was diagnosed with stage four chronic kidney disease. James Blunt wrote “Monsters” to “express his feelings about his father and his illness, almost as if it’s a touching farewell to his father”. In an interview with Good Morning Britain Blunt said.

“Really that has been an amazing moment. Because when you realise your father’s mortality it’s a great opportunity to say the things I’d like to say to him. So I have written a song called Monsters for him.”

In the same interview he made a plea for type O kidney donors to step forward. In January 2020 MSN reported Blunt’s father had been scheduled for a transplant. Information Wikipedia

James father survived happily.

Oh, before they turn off all the lights
I won’t read you your wrongs or your rights
The time has gone
I’ll tell you goodnight, close the door
Tell you I love you once more
The time has gone
So here it is

I’m not your son, you’re not my father
We’re just two grown men saying goodbye
No need to forgive, no need to forget
I know your mistakes and you know mine
And while you’re sleeping I’ll try to make you proud
So, daddy, won’t you just close your eyes?
Don’t be afraid, it’s my turn
To chase the monsters away

Oh, well, I’ll read a story to you
Only difference is this one is true
The time has gone
I folded your clothes on the chair
I hope you sleep well, don’t be scared
The time has gone
So here it is

I’m not your son, you’re not my father
We’re just two grown men saying goodbye
No need to forgive, no need to forget
I know your mistakes and you know mine
And while you’re sleeping I’ll try to make you proud
So, daddy, won’t you just close your eyes?
Don’t be afraid, it’s my turn
To chase the monsters away

Sleep a lifetime
Yes, and breathe a last word
You can feel my hand on your own
I will be the last one
So I’ll leave a light on
Let there be no darkness, in your heart

But I’m not your son, you’re not my father
We’re just two grown men saying goodbye
No need to forgive, no need to forget
I know your mistakes and you know mine
And while you’re sleeping I’ll try to make you proud
So, daddy, won’t you just close your eyes?
Don’t be afraid, it’s my turn
To chase the monsters away

The New Year beckons. As young as she is, she holds the promise of new and exciting times.
Wrapped still in winter’s deathly cold, she meanders forth.
Yet underneath hope is preparing to bloom bright and new.

Careful what you wish for.

IMG_20150616_110125444_HDRIt is  all hidden  in  there  you know

The   promise  of a  golden life

Teasing  and  hinting  as the beauty grows

Would  it  not be  better  to  stay here  not  emerge  to strife.

 

Not  yet has  the harsh  cruelness  of  this  world  touched  you

Maybe  the present  safety you know is better  than  the  what is  to come

So ¬†don’t ¬†hurry ¬†out ¬†too soon ¬†nothing ¬†will be as you expect. True

The  warmth is  beguiling  as are the  silver diamonds of  the  moon  and  the golden rays of  the sun.

When life comes it is  glorious  but  short too  short.

Wordless Wednesday : Natures Promise
