My roses: Darling Wes how are you my beloved?
I wanted to find the words to the Richard Tauber song
“You are my heart’s delight and where you are I want to be.”
I have missed you so much today….
Wes: My beloved Darling I am glad to hear you today and I hear
your words of love you say each day to me. But this is special
because I can reply to you as you write this. I have grown
in some further knowledge over the last 2 weeks of your time.
Not only this, but I am preparing myself to meet you, so I
can help you when you arrive here with me. In the meantime,
I am resting and learning. The Lord spoke to me yesterday
about you. I know of your suffering and am deeply moved by it.
But I know that I must be prepared in knowledge and sincerity
to greet you.
My roses: Did you get any further insight re bereavement since we
spoke of it before?
Wes: I have been given more knowledge about this
as I have not gone through such a serious level of grief myself.
But I am sure I would have been at that serious level, if you
were not with me on earth. I reach out to you with my mind and
heart and link my love with yours – particularly when you speak or sing to me. I have come to realise how deep this grief is and the Lord has indicated that I am not to be concerned about this but just hold you in my mind and heart. Daily I pour out my love to you – because my love – you are my heart’s delight and always have been. Every day as I think on various lovely things, I think about you
and on occasions come to know more about how you are.
I am doing a great deal of reading and attend a gathering most days
which fills us all with “life” as we experience the joy that is around us .
My roses: I cannot believe that 3 months have gone by since I last saw yo my Darling Wes.
I do not know how I am coping with it all…. And many days I am not coping – days when I
feel that I just cannot live without you… the pain is so severe.
I long to see your face, hold your hand again, and stroke your face
and hold you in my arms. Most days I feel only half there. I long to be on the right road, the narrow road that leads to heaven. My thoughts and my eyes fix very often on heaven, being there with you and seeing you again.
Wes : I am sure that the Lord is working on that all the time and I trust his
Word about this. I have told him that I love you for all that
you done for me but even greater than that because you are a
part of me at all times. You are in my heart and your love is in my soul. You are precious to me,
more than any jewel.
My roses: Do you remember the Christmas card you wrote to me last December?
Wes: Yes, I do, now that you ask about it. What I wrote impacted
My heart so greatly, even though I was so ill, but I felt it and
had to write it down for you to know – that even as weak as I was – the power of love was working. Love is an amazing thing, that I could find the energy to write the words I wanted - all I could think of was I must convey this to you. I needed to do it, as much as you were meant to know it.
I hope that it is a comfort for you whom I love so much.
My roses: I love the words, and also the words of your Anniversary Card for last September . They are so
deep, loving and powerful. They are comforting, but also bring great tears
oo…emphasising the loss of your presence. Tears come at any time of the day or night,
and they can come from reading something you have written, seeing your clothes,
or hearing music. Wes, I could never have imagined that it would be this bad. In fact,
I thought we would have more time together into our 80’s or 90’s. I think I would
have been more prepared then.
Wes : I did not think about it a lot but I think I felt it was common
in our family to live until late old age. I am glad though that
I am here, as it had been a concern in my heart for quite a long
time that I was not in the right place with God. Although
you are not here with me, I believe I can help you and be
of assistance here too. I have to wait to know…. but this is
my desire. Every day here, something new is revealed to me.
The Lord however, does know my desire to serve here
and to bring joy and help to you. He knows my heart
regarding you - and has read my eyes, seen my spirit and
fathomed my love. ….. Dear you should now go to bed.
My roses: Yes my love, I will go to bed – but before then I will look for
the words of the song I spoke about today.
For you are my heart’s delight, and you make my darkness
bright (which is another part of the song). Dearest speak to me again soon. It helps
to survive the days. I love you.
Wes: Dearest …. you are MY heart’s delight too – without you my life would have been nothing
like it became with you.
My roses: Dearest Wes here is the song title I mentioned first and some of the words .
Sung by Richard Tauber.
From the operetta Land of Smiles, composed by Franz Lehar
Lyrics-Part 1: You are my hearts delight, And where you are, I long to be You make my darkness bright, When like a star you shine on me. Shine, then, my whole life through. Your life divine bids me hope anew That dreams of mine may perhaps come true And I shall hear you whisper, I love you. In dreams when night is falling I seem to hear you calling….
I have also just heard this song sung by Richard Tauber.
TOSELLI'S SERENADE ( Music by Enrico Toselli)
Sung by Richard Tauber
Like a golden dream, in my heart ever smiling.
Lives a vision fair of happy love I knew in days gone by.
Still I seem to hear your laughter beguiling.
Still to see the joy, the love light beaming from your radiant eyes.
Will my dreaming be in vain?
Will my love ne'er come again?
Come, shall we waste the golden hours of youth far apart?
What care I for life, without you by my side?
Do not delay, time flees away.
Your arms are my paradise.
You and only you can fill my heart.
Oh, star of my heaven,
Come back and shed your light upon my way.
Come back! My Love!
My roses: I know that you cannot come back my love…. But I can come to you. I wanted to give you the words of this song with its beautiful music.
We are also linked by music and its meaning for us personally. Goodnight Darling Wesi.
