One night I was talking on the phone with a long distance friend who happened to fall asleep during the conversation.  I understood...  he had worked hard all day!  I wasn't sure what to do, though...  Just hang up?  Make a noise and maybe he would wake?  Perhaps, better to just wait for a bit....

I had my autoharp close by, as usual, and absently strummed a chord.  Suddenly, I realized my sleeping friend was breathing in the key of D Minor!  While I waited for him to wake up, the beginnings of "Lover's Lullaby" took form....

It was the first part of the story...

It often happens that Love just isn't what we thought it was - or hoped it to be!  Hearts do get broken, but that is never the true end of the story, is it?  Not at all.... because, if it weren't for those "failed" romances, we would not be prepared for the one we are meant to love forever!

However, that doesn't excuse callous or ignorant behavior....and yes... this is the end part of what started in "Lover's Lullaby" and a mild lesson in NOT hurting a Bard!  Can you find the secret message?  Here's a hint...  I love acrostics!!! (By the way... if you figure it out, let me know!)

This is a song I wrote for my mother-in-law - a wonderful and beautiful lady.  Her memory is slipping away now, but sometimes she has these incredible flashes from the past.  The lyrics all come from things she has said to me...
