No Night So Long

I have long been a fan of Dionne Warwick and some years ago on one of her many albums I found one of her lesser known songs that I believe to be one of her best. Attached are the entire lyrics and my own karaoke version of the song and a children’s story reading that seemed to fit with the today’s theme.

That first paragraph reminds me of how the old black preacher described the way he delivered all his sermons, “First I tells ‘em what I’m gonna tell ‘em. Then I tells ‘em what I tells ‘em. Lastly, I tells ‘em what I told ‘em.” Three years in Bible College never taught me any better way to deliver a message than that.

Nor did I ever hear nor deliver myself a more powerful lesson than Miss Warwick’s song and the little Sesame Street bedtime story tell so well.

Sweet dreams, Dear Hearts.

Your friend and fellow traveler,
