BEAUTIFUL BESS

A song for John for his beloved dog Bess which was written as part of a fund raising project 'song in a million' for rescue dogs in the care of DDA Watch. John wrote the memories of his life with Bess and we created a song from the inspiration of his words in return for a donation direct to DDA Watch to help the 'Magnificent Seven' reach a happy future. Links to this project are at the bottom of the page.


A thank you from John -


I've just read the lyrics and listened to the song. It is beautiful Maria and better than I could have ever hoped for. It is something that means so much and is so special to me. As I said, I knew you would do Bess justice and you have! I can't thank you and Paul enough for everything you've done.


'Beautiful Bess'

Oh girl it's been ten years
But I sit here thinking of you
And I still feel the tears
And oh the love surrounds you
And you are ever near

No fence could keep you in
For you were born to run
A shadow in the wind
A heart that brought the sun
My special one

I'll never forget
The moment we met
All bones, love and need
You came home with me

My beautiful Bess
I'd give anything
To hold you again
And I keep you within
My beautiful friend
The day that I found you
Still etched in my mind
My love for all time

Oh you showed me how to trust
For you learnt to trust again
Someone hurt you in the past
But you knew I was your friend
And I would make amends

When I came home from work
No time to catch my breath
But for you I'd give the world
For you always gave your best
My funny girl

I'll never forget
The moment we met
All bones, love and need
You came home with me

My beautiful Bess
I'd give anything
To hold you again
And I keep you within
My beautiful friend
The day that I found you
Still etched in my mind
My love for all time

My beautiful girl
You sleep in the light
You taught me to fight
To speak up for right
My beautiful friend
You'll always be here
In the pain of my tears
Until we meet again
My beautiful friend
My beautiful friend...
