You’re Brighter than the Stars

By Heart

You’re asked to recite a poem (or song lyrics) from memory — what’s the first one that comes to mind? Does it have a special meaning, or is there another reason it has stayed, intact, in your mind?

To a mother her children will always be her greatest treasure. Love you for always.

  1. “You Needed Me”, Anne Murray

    This is a song I sang in choir back in 1982. I always loved it and continued to find myself singing it throughout the years. Last year I met a man. The most wonderful man. Soon after this song again found its way into my head. I tried to share it with him by singing it out loud but I was so overcome with the reality of how much every word of this song had come true for me that I could not even finish a verse. I wept. I found the song and played it for him and we held each other as we listened.

    I cried a tear, you wiped it dry
    I was confused, you cleared my mind
    I sold my soul, you bought it back for me
    And held me up and gave me dignity
    Somehow you needed me

    You gave me strength to stand alone again
    To face the world out on my own again
    You put me high upon a pedestal
    So high that I could almost see eternity
    You needed me, you needed me

    And I can’t believe it’s you I can’t believe it’s true
    I needed you and you were there
    And I’ll never leave, why should I leave, I’d be a fool
    ‘Cause I finally found someone who really cares

    You held my hand when it was cold
    When I was lost, you took me home
    You gave me hope when I was at the end
    And turned my lies back into truth again
    You even called me friend

    You gave me strength to stand alone again
    To face the world out on my own again
    You put me high upon a pedestal
    So high that I could almost see eternity
    You needed me, you needed me
    You needed me, you needed me
