65. 65

I’d tell you of wild horses

And tell you of the deer

The tall trees in the mountains

If only you could hear


I’d tell you of the rivers

That flow into the sea

And sounds that break the silence

If only you could hear




You cannot hear the winds that blow

Or music softly played

Or hear bird chorus singing

Or the cattle as they low


But if you could read my lips dear

I’d tell you of my love

The way you make me feel inside

If only you could hear.



“Dad that is beautiful we have to come up with a tune.’

Dawn spent the next three hours playing around with the words until at three minutes past midnight she had something.

She wrote down the notes to each line and the chorus then played it back and tried to imagine how the song should be played.

It needed violins and the sound of an acoustic guitar nothing more, and a softer tone to her voice.

She and her father worked on the song and finished it at five the next morning it had been a labour of love but it was done and the album was complete.’

It didn’t take long for Dawn to fall asleep after she had gone to bed and they all slept until ten o’clock the next morning.

Jim rang Tony to tell him that they had eight songs done and that the first album was ready.’

“When can you come down here to cut the album can you charter a flight for us we could be there in two hours.’

It would mean working here on Sunday said Tony but if Dawn doesn’t mind we can get this done possibly by early Monday. We have to be back before four on Monday Tony I am meeting Dawns grand parents for the very first time and I cannot be late.’

“Don’t worry I will have you back in Newcastle by then.

 “Anything you need down here man?’

“We need about ten violins; a washboard and thimbles, a banjo, and an accordion.’

“Leave that with me; just get a taxi to the airport as soon as you can.’

Jim hung up then shouted for Rosina to make breakfast and to get herself ready quickly.

Dawn heard her father and dashed to the toilet and then began to get herself ready.’
