David Potts-Dupre: Music

I've Been Blessed

(David Potts-Dupre)
I'VE BEEN BLESSED David Potts-Dupre 5/18/07

When the sun it warms my skin, I've been blessed
When I see a child grin, I've been blessed
When the night it turns to day
And when I get to hear you say
That you want to stay beside me, I've been blessed

As the flower loves the soil, I've been blessed
As my hands they seek to toil, I've been blessed
As I breathe the evening air
And as at you I can only stare
There is nothing more that I need, I've been blessed

Bridge
With you by my side, all my fears subside
Our love will abide, yes I've been blessed

While a bird is on the wing, I've been blessed
While at night I get to sing, I've been blessed
While I see you in the crowd
And while I call your name outloud
Yes, while I lay down next to you, I've been blessed

Bridge

It's the time I've spent with you, I've been blessed
It's the stars and the morning dew, I've been blessed
It's the small things that mean the most
It's the way that you hold me close
It's the love we've shared together, I've (we've) been blessed


Song Notes
I've Been Blessed

A simple song in chord progression, melody and lyrics, but a song that's taken me thirty seven years to write. I'm fifty-three now and that's how long Lori and I have been together.
