“Drifting Sand” Poem...

“Bring You Flowers” is a new page in the Galaxy Cafe section. This page is dedicated to our troops  & their families, and is meant to honor those who are serving our country. “Bring You Flowers” is a song written and performed by Kristen Scott, a new artist on DesertSnow. The song is about a young woman who lost her husband in the war in Afghanistan, and is now raising her son alone. This song is based on a true story. As we celebrate the holidays, please remember our troops and their families in your prayers and in your gifts,  whatever you are able to do for them.

For God so loved each and every person throughout all ages that he sent his only Son (a Prince) to this world as a homeless man (a Pauper)...that whoever would believe that he really is a Prince and accept his death (as payment for the things they have done wrong),  they would not lose themselves (die) but inherit the true riches (that  will never fade), and live forever with God...John 3:16“The foxes have their dens, and the birds have their nests, but I, the Messiah (Jesus Christ) do not have a place to lay my head.”   Matthew 8:20

The Galaxy Cafe has “food for the soul,” and includes special features about musicians around the world. As time goes on, more artists will be added. During the holiday season, new articles, videos, and art will be  added. I hope you enjoy these pages. If there is something you would  like to see in this section, especially with regard to our troops and their families, please send us an email at support@desertsnow.org - thanks!

This song was written for those who are really hurting...

This page is dedicated to the family and friends of Claire Davis. She was a senior at Arapahoe High School, class of 2014. She loved horses, and people around her said she had a big heart and cared for everyone. This poem is written especially for her parents and those who were close to her. I hope the poem, pictures, and words on this page help and encourage everyone who loved her.

 

A Few Days Ago

There are ribbons and cards and hearts

And pictures where crayons made their marks

And stuffed animals staring out across the road

By a sidewalk where people walked and stood

And gazed and prayed as long as they could

 

There are trees and wreaths and stockings red

Hanging in houses with empty beds

With people in the night staring ahead

Instead of sleeping and dreaming of snowmen and sleds

They are fully awake and pondering instead

 

The history and mystery of a few days ago...

 

One young girl has more presents than ever

From so many waiting for what seems like forever

For any good news that might come their way...

But the minutes turn to hours as they wait each day

And all the presents silently before us lay

 

You've never seen so many people with just one wish

That Claire could come home and see all the gifts

And love and hope and silent prayers

That she will come home and see us there

But all our plans changed - and we can't believe...

 

The history and mystery of a few days ago...

And a few days later...

 

The doorway of death opened for her

And she walked through - and it's all just a blurr...

The presents and bows and cards and their colors

Slowly fade before her family and friends and all the others

Waiting for Christmas day - waiting to hear her say,

 

"I came back, and it's over..."

 

The history and mystery of a few days ago...

 

And clocks keep on ticking and the world turns around

Without Claire speaking or walking or making a sound

Empty shoes in her closet and clothes hanging there

With no one to wear them - her room is so bare

...Without Claire...

We sit on her bed in silence now and stare

 

Seventeen years and she was taken away

 

By the history and mystery of a few days ago...

 

We're stuck here now in the room where she slept

We can't seem to move

Though others say "Go on..."

It will be so hard to go to work

With no phone calls, laundry, or food to cook for her

For seventeen years we got used to this

Making a sandwich for her, or giving her a good-night kiss...

 

And when the alarm goes off in the morning

When the sun goes down at night

There is only silence where once her voice stood out

Sometimes with a whisper

Sometimes with a shout

But always from a heart so dear...

 

Please be patient and understand

When we can't walk as well

Or think or even stand to tell

Anyone how we feel

Or what we need

Or where we are going now

We must find a new voice

A new song

A new day-to-day way

Because we can't go around this grief;

We must go through it

Until the day when we see her again

On the other side of life...

 

For the family and friends of Claire Davis

Read the news story about Claire.

I wrote this song for those who are really hurting. Here are the lyrics:

Living Water

The living water    

Remains

When the river of dreams

Has run dry

 

The living water    

Is flowing

When hopes

Have all run dry

When life

Has made you cry

It flows

And heals your soul...your soul

 

Deeper and wider  

It's flowing

Nurturing the tree of life        

Whose leaves    

Are for healing

 

A broken heart...     

A broken heart...     

 

And your tears    

Will lead you

To the throne of Majesty

Where caring

And kindness

Make your sorrow fly away

 

Let the living water  

Take away your sorrow

And the streams will lead you

To your heavenly Father

      

Let the living water  

Find the pain that hurts you

And the streams will lead you

To a place refreshing...
