Near and Dear

Yesterday was a special day for me, and it was lovely to read caring messages sent by friends and family. It was even better to see and talk to people I care about. Yet nothing can or will replace being held and holding those we care about. Thanks to K, I didn't miss out too much in that department. 

Never-the-less, I am in a sentimental mood today. This has been my ear-worm. 

The Nearness of You, performed ever-so-gently by Norah Jones. 

It's not the pale moon
That excites me
That thrills and delights me
Oh no
It's just the nearness of you

It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation
Oh no
It's just the nearness of you

When you're in my arms
And I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams
Came true

I need no soft lights
To enchant me
If you would only grant me
The right
To hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night
The nearness of you

Music: Hoagy Carmichael Lyrics: Ned Washington
