Dear Mairead,
I posted this poem that I wrote after I had a dream about the tour being over and you all returning home. I did not think you would see it in another section but was hoping you might here. Thank you again and enjoy your time at home.
Dave

"Waiting"

Venues are empty
Isles are clear
We stand in the stillness
Hoping to hear

Sounds so amazing
Still in our minds
Beautiful feelings
Time after time

We still feel the presence
Of the Angels we know
For us it is sadness
Seeing them go

Deep in our souls
We know this is best
They have given their all
Now they must rest

The evenings are still
No laughter no cheers
The days we must wait
Seem much like years

A vision of future
From the songs we have learned
Will now keep us smiling
Till they finally return

Thanks Scott and I do count on you for that help. That makes efforts here so much more meaningful to me and others I'm certain. Knowing that Mairead actually reads our thoughts is so wonderful.
What a special place, it never ceases to amaze me .
