Attending night prayers at the seminary almost always meant hearing that ancient but rather beautiful melody of “Day is done“. Many years later even as we close this maiden issue, I hear similar thought-provoking lyrics, albeit, this time on a more worldly tune. Most would tag Barry Manilow ancient though, considering he started way back from the 70’s, however the words from his music are timeless, and I seek acquiescence to be able to use it here as a parting thought:
Sleep baby, sleep — lose yesterday’s blues
When you’re ready for morning, have I got news:
Our ship’s in the harbor, the street’s turning gold,
Whatever you’re dreaming, it’s no longer on hold…
Dream baby, dream — while you were asleep,
I had mountains to climb and a promise to keep
Now home is the hunter and holding the prize,
I’m waiting tell you when you open your eyes…
Bring on tomorrow for me and for you;
We hung on through dark hours, dawn’s overdue.
Bring on tomorrow and show me the sun,
We’ll live it together cause you are the one.
– Barry Manilow, from 15 Minutes (fame, can you take it?)
We hope you read us again in next month’s issue. So, bring on tomorrow.
