". . . From glen to Glen and down the mountainside"

The Irish in me loves songs from the heart and to the heart. Here's one I hope you enjoy! When I first heard this version of Dylan's song, I thought that with the exception of a phrase here and there, it could be sung to one's son or daughter as well as one's loverTHAT is how it rang true for me when I heard it.

To Make You Feel My Love (by Bob Dylan)

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong

I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling down the avenue
No, there's nothing that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rollin' sea
Down on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
But you ain't seen nothing like me yet

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
To make you feel my love

To make you feel my love
To make you feel my love

It seems only love received softens the heart enough so it can love. May we all have loads of love being sent into, and experienced within, our lives today!
