Inside My Heart

Music HighwayAbout six months ago, my youngest brother, Gil, called to inform me that he needed to have minor heart surgery to repair a leaky valve. His doctor had told him it should be done while he was still young and strong.

Today, all is well. His operation was a success. But when Gil first called me after learning about his heart condition, he was shaking his head. Why?

Because just a few months earlier, in October of last year while he was visiting me in Connecticut, I asked his permission to post a couple of his song compositions onto this blog website. The song, Inside My Heart, was one of them. The other one was Keep Looking Up which I posted in December, 2015 (click on the title).

The song Inside My Heart was composed in 1994, the year that my father passed away, (my mom died about nine weeks later that same year – possible future blog post here, Lord willing).

Gil composed the song in memory of the love my dad had for us siblings. It was dedicated in honor of the memories he gave us. Gil’s heart surgery caused him to appreciate the song even more.

My dad left much for his family. He especially left traits of love that we, his children, are still emulating now to a great extent.  Among them are: a love of music, a love of humor, and a love for God. No, my dad was not perfect, but who in the flesh is?

He was, for most of his life, a Roman Catholic. And when I left the Catholic religion after finishing high school, he was gracious and patient enough to listen to all of my strange new viewpoints and very unorthodox, Christian beliefs I was observing at that time. I was amazed when he himself later made a transformation to Protestantism.

Anyway, my brother Gil’s beautiful composition can also be applied to reflect the perfect heart of our Father God in heaven and His great love towards His children everywhere on earth. And it is indeed amazing how, because of His wonderful grace and patience, we Christians can continually change and become more and more like Him.

Happy Father’s Day.

Inside my heart,
You’ll live forever
Though at this moment
We may be so far apart
I’ll cherish each day, that we were together
Nothing ever can take those dreams away

Cerca de mi, cerca del alma
Esta el amor, que yo siento por ti
Espero el dia
Que podamos estar juntos
Asi otras vez
Mi corazon podra vivir

You gave me love from the beginning
And I’ll always be grateful
For who you are
My hope that I again will be with you
So my nights can sparkle with the stars

Inside my heart,
You’ll live forever
Though at this moment
We may be so far apart
I’ll cherish each day, we were together
Nothing ever can take those dreams away
Nothing ever can take those dreams away
Nothing ever can take those dreams away
