Sweetly flows the water from the mountain
Softly falls the rain upon the leaves
Gently blows the breeze among the cedars
Quietly my heart is on its knees.

How could anything in all creation
Be more beautiful then all I see
With it all my heart is not rejoicing
Because the one I love is not with me.

Somewhere in between us was a difference
Not we or all this beauty could secure
And I know now my heart will ache forever
And I wonder if this mountain can endure.



So I'm leavin' for the flatlands
Goin' back where I was conceived
Goin' back where nobody knows the difference
This mountain knows too much about me.

I thought it was written up in heaven
That you would be with me and I with you
Sun and moon and stars must feel the difference
They're wishin' there was somethin' they could do.

So I'm leavin' for the flatlands
Goin' back where I was conceived
Goin' back where nobody knows the difference
This mountain knows too much about me.
This mountain knows too much about me....

Ciao, carissima Torry!
*I thought it was written up in heaven / That you would be with me and I with you* how sad is to compare this lonely Ennis with the smiling one sending up his prayer of thanks. :( So many feelings are swirling in Ennis’ eyes here! And his gaze talks about his loneliness and his yearning. Your drawing is like catching a glimpse of his heart. You never fail to peg our boy’s emotions completely with your amazing skills, dearest! :)
Thank you so very much for sharing ♥♥
Much love
Tina

Thank you Tina, It is very sad to think of the regrets and torment Ennis must have felt for many years after Jack. For that reason alone I'm so happy to read about a sweet life together for Ennis and Jack.
Thank you and your stories to make that come true.
Love you,
Torry
