Ethereal Thoughts


Melissa's Sacred Water Garden

 

Melissa always wanted me to build her a Water Garden. One day she presented me with a sketch that represented her vision of what the backyard should look like. The sketch was concise and detailed enough to get me motivated.  It was something that I knew would make her happy, so I agreed to do it.

I broke ground in the early spring of 2004 and completed the pond and waterfall by June 2004. I'll never forget the look on her face when she returned home from work one Saturday late afternoon around 6:30 pm and I handed her a remote control switch to activate the pump. When she pressed the button and the water began to cascaded over the rocks in the waterfall splashing down into the pond she jumped two feet off the ground with excitement. I finished all of the plantings and landscaping around the pond, and promised her that I would complete the rest of the garden by the end of the year.

Melissa passed to spirit three months later, in September 2004. It wasn't until May of 2005 that I felt the strength to fulfill my promise and complete the Sacred Water Garden for Melissa. My passion and determination to complete this project was different now, it became a True Labor of Love. After working up to eight hours a day, seven days a week for 15 weeks I finally completed my mission on September 28th, 2005, the one year anniversary of her passing.

I know that it was her that gave me the strength and courage to carry on. When I sit in Melissa's Sacred Garden to Meditate, I can feel her healing energy and eternal love envelope me. I know she is happy, I can "feel" her smile.

Days Go By

 

Melissa's favorite song was "Days Go By" by Keith Urban. In her year book, her quote was "We think about tomorrow then it slips away. We talk about forever but we've only got today."

Lyrics to the Song

We think about tomorrow then it slips away.
Oh, yes, it does.
We talk about forever but we've only got today...

  I'm changing lanes and talkin' on the phone
Drivin' way too fast.
And the interstate's jammed with gunners like me
Afraid of comin' in last.
But somewhere in the race we run,
We're coming undone...

CHORUS:
And days go by...
I can feel 'em flyin'
Like a hand out the window in the wind.
The cars go by...
Yeah it's all we've been given,
So you better start livin' right now
'Cause days go by...
Oh and a woo-hoo...

Out on the roof just the other night
I watched the world flash by,
Headlights, taillights,
Running through a river of neon signs.
Mmm-hmmm...
But somewhere in the rush I felt,
We're losing ourselves...

CHORUS:
And days go by...
I can feel 'em flyin'
Like a hand out the window in the wind.
The cars go by...
Yeah it's all we've been given,
So you better start livin' right now,
And days go by...
Oh and a woo-hoo...
Yeah, the days go by...
Oh and a woo-hoo!

We think about tomorrow then it slips away.
Oh, yes, it does.
We talk about forever but we've only got today...

And the days go by...
I can feel 'em flyin'
Like a hand out the window as the cars go by...
Yeah it's all we've been given,
So you better start livin',
You better start livin',
Better start livin' right now

! CHORUS:
'Cause days go by...>br> I can feel 'em flyin'
Like a hand out the window in the wind.
The cars go by...
Yeah it's all we've been given,
So you better start livin' right now...
'Cause days go by...
Oh and a woo-hoo...
Yeah, these days go by...
Oh and a woo-hooo!

Oh!
So take 'em by the hand,
They're yours and mine.
Take 'em by the hand,
And live your life.
Take 'em by the hand,
Don't let 'em all fly by!

Come on, Come on now...
Yeah!
Come on now!
Oh and a woo-hooo!
Don't you know the days go by...
