about

THE QUICKENING is one of two songs on this album whose lyrics were penned by the talented author and therapist Gay Hendricks. Gay wrote these words as a tribute to his wife and co-writer Kathlyn, and I set them to music. If you're in a relationship and looking for tools to make it joyous, passionate, easy and "successful", check out their book Conscious Loving.

lyrics

THE QUICKENING
(Pamela Polland / Gay Hendricks)

Deep inside me there's a river
And this river's now in flood
When I'm near you there's a surging
A surging in my blood

Deep inside me there's a stream
A stream of dancing light
When I see you my heart quickens
Like wild swans taking flight

When I think you seem to hear it
When you hurt I cannot bear it
Do I dare to hope you share it?
This quickening of my love. (2x)

By the seashore I went walking
And found a lonely shell
In its center there's a roaring
Eternity cannot quell

My hear t had turned to winter
A cold and graceless land
That sprang to joy and laughter
When I first touched your hand

When I think you seem to hear it
When you hurt I cannot bear it
Do I dare to hope you share it?
This quickening of my love (2x)
