U is for Under – A to Z Blogging Challenge

There are many great “U” words I tossed around for our Music In Me theme. “Unbelievable” came to mind. One of Marcus’ favorite songs is “Unwell” and mine too and we could talk about that for awhile.

But no…there are only a few days and posts left and so, in order to squeeze in what I consider a very important and poignant song, image, and message.

Soooo, U stands for Under which rhymes with Wonder. 

“Wonder” by Natalie Merchant

I really think we couldn’t have this theme without this one. Enjoy!

“Wonder”
By Natalie Merchant

Doctors have come from distant cities
Just to see me
Stand over my bed
Disbelieving what they’re seeing

They say I must be one of the wonders
Of god’s own creation
And as far as they can see they can offer
No explanation

Newspapers ask intimate questions
Want confessions
They reach into my head
To steal the glory of my story

They say I must be one of the wonders
Of god’s own creation
And as far as they can see they can offer
No explanation

O, I believe
Fate smiled and destiny
Laughed as she came to my cradle
Know this child will be able
Laughed as my body she lifted
Know this child will be gifted
With love, with patience and with faith
She’ll make her way

People see me
I’m a challenge to your balance
I’m over your heads
How I confound you and astound you
To know I must be one of the wonders
Of god’s own creation
And as far as you can see you can offer me
No explanation

O, I believe
Fate smiled and destiny
Laughed as she came to my cradle
Know this child will be able
Laughed as she came to my mother
Know this child will not suffer
Laughed as my body she lifted
Know this child will be gifted
With love, with patience and with faith
She’ll make her way

**Thanks to Natalie Merchant for this beautiful song.**
