(The Change We Look For)
When the Seeker's Day is Done
by Shelagh Huston and Ted MacGillivray
If there is no question
Do we need an answer?
Can we welcome hunger
While we search for bread?
All we need is kindness
From a true companion,
All we need is shelter
And a friendly bed.
The changes we look for is a river,
Flowing water in the sunlight,
Pink and orange, rose and scarlet
When the seeker's day is done,
When the seeker’s day is done.
If we travel hopeful
With no destination –
If we just keep walking
On the seeker's way
The road will be a river
Flowing always onward.
And though we walk through darkness
We know we’ll find the day.
Author's Notes: Due to WV's automatic formatting, I'm listed as the author, and I couldn't change that. But it's really Shelagh's song. I was the midwife when Shelagh and I met at a songwriting workshop and paired off to write. She's a veeerry spiritual woman, the kind who puts her money where her mouth is --- carrying the mortgage for the "Commons" project on the island where we live.
Words came tumbling out of her and we managed to tame them and organize them. Mostly I was an editor and composed the melody which simply wrote itself.
But it's really Shelagh's song. It's really Shelagh's song.
Author's Location: Gabriola Island, British Columbia
