Recently my hubby and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary! I wanted to give him a special gift this year so I composed a song in his honor called, ‘On the Wings of an Eagle’.
The first three verses were written by a talented poetess, Jo’Lene Tover, whom I managed to track down on the internet. I was delighted when she kindly gave me permission to post the song on my blog. The first two sentences of the 4th verse of the song is taken from a Baha’i marriage prayer written by Abdu’l-Baha and I wrote the last 2 sentences to rhyme with the first two (please see the lyrics below).
I waited a whole month to surprise my husband with his song and it took everything in me not to share it with him before our anniversary! Good thing I didn’t as it was worth the wait to make our anniversary special. My hubby was definitely surprised and loved the song.
The funky guitar is played by my son (I’m so glad he agreed to play on the piece as it added an upbeat and joyous element). I’m trying to decide whether I should develop the song further as this is just a rough version. So have a listen to the song below and let me know what you think.
On the wings of an eagle My love for you flies Soaring higher and higher, And touching the skies I reached up above, And pulled a star from the sky. To place it within, Your precious minds eye To dwell there forever, As my love for you. On the wings of our love, Enduring and true. These two bright moons Are wedded in Thy love Bonded forever In all the worlds above
