I Do Not Fear the Time
My mother and father are married 47 years today.
In their honor, and in honor of the occasion, I have two mournful yet appropriate songs for them. This is, of course, a day to celebrate and be extremely joyful--partly because we know that it won't last forever. And so the celebration and joy includes mourning over the sweet receding past and the inevitable parting yet to come.
Here's a beautiful song written by Sandy Denny.
And here's a lovely one by Richard and Linda Thompson.
