If we listen to each other’s heart
We’ll find we’re never too far apart
And maybe love is a reason why
For the first time ever, we’re seein’ it eye to eye

“I2I” performed by DCapella; songwriters Patrick DeRemer and Roy Freeland

I2I

Performed by DCappella

Yeah, yeah
Hey, yeah

Got myself a notion
And one I know that you’ll understand
To set the world in motion
By reaching out for each other’s hand
Maybe we’ll discover
What we shoulda known all along, yeah

One way or another, together’s where we both belong
If we listen to each other’s heart (oh yeah)
We’ll find we’re never too far apart
And maybe love is a reason why
For the first time ever, we’re seein’ it eye to eye

If a wall should come between us
Too high to climb, too hard to break through
I know that love’ll lead us
And find a way to bring me to you

So don’t be in a hurry
Think before you count us out, oh
You don’t have to worry
I won’t ever let you drown
(Nothing’s gonna stop us now)

If we listen to each other’s heart
We’ll find we’re never too far apart
And maybe love is a reason why
For the first time ever, we’re seein’ it eye to eye

Love is why we’re seein’ it eye to eye
(Yes, we are seein’) eye to eye we’re seein’ it
Seein’ it eye to eye
(Love is why we’re seein’ it eye to eye)
We’re seein’ it eye to eye
(Eye to eye we’re seein’ it
We’re seein’ it eye to eye
Love is why we’re seein’ it eye to eye
(Eye to eye, yeah) eye to eye we’re seein’ it
Eye to eye

If you’re ever lonely, then stop
You don’t have to be
After all, it’s only a beat away from you to me
(Take a look inside and see)

Yeah, if we listen to each other’s heart
We’ll find we’re never too far apart
And maybe love is a reason why
For the first time ever, we’re seein’ it eye to eye

Seein’ it eye to eye
Seein’ it eye to eye
Eye to eye
For the first time
For the first time (seein’ it eye to eye)
Eye to eye
Seein’ it
Seein’ it, baby
Seein’ it eye to eye
Yeah for the first time ever (eye to eye)
Hey yeah
Seein’ it, baby
We’re seein’ it eye to eye (eye to eye)
Yeah, seein’ it
C’mon, baby (seein’ it eye to eye)
Eye to eye, eye to eye, eye to eye, eye to eye
Eye to eye, eye to eye (yeah)
Eye to eye

Photo “White Sage” by Cord X.  Thank you, Cord!

“Flowers are the music of the ground. From earth’s lips spoken without sound.” – Edwin Curran

I don’t know which poem today’s quote is from but I thought it perfectly matched Cord’s beautiful white sage flower.  Edwin Curran published his first book of poems in 1917.  He was born in 1892, so he was 25-years old at the time.  I found this first poem in that book so captivating and sweet and so full of hope that I know I’ll share more of his poetry in the future.

THE FUTURE – IF WE WIN

I leaped here out of time and saw ahead
into the years still locked and chained and still;
I leaped into that great sleep, yet still dead
And saw there all the power of the human will,
All the toil of ages gathered and unfurled
Into a thing of beauty on a glorious hill,
The Flag of The United Nations of the World!

The sea was full of ships, great argosies in white,
With sweet wines, silks, sandalwood and wheat;
The fields lay heaped in gold and far abroad
The marts of all the world wore jewels of light.
The mountains laughed and peace was in the street
And gloriously, the world was happy as God.

On still the Vison took human sense
Beyond the world and down the path of men
Thru happiness immortal, then the centuries
And on forever and forever hence
Past earth and time and space and back again,
Thru the endless joy of marvelous eternities.

-Edwin Curran, First Poems, 1917

It makes me wonder what tucked away poems are lost in time.  If we live forever, will we find them all eventually and read them to each other, do you think?
