Artist's Description

This photo of my two dogs, Mikey and Molly is a great
example of the quote, “a picture is worth a thousand words.”
Viewing their intimate and loving relationship is a model
for humans who often seek sensation and infatuation
rather than genuine love that grows over time. One of my
favorite jazz artists is Nina Simone. Her album, Baltimore
is not as well known as many of her other brilliant
recordings. This beautiful song, “A Little Love”
is a profoundly sensitive lyric about the growth of
love between two sensitive and
sentient beings whose souls touch in this gentle and
poignant photograph. Please view this in the large format.

A little love that slowly
grows and grows
Not one that comes and goes
That’s all I want from you
A sunny day with hopes up
to the skies
Not a day that comes and
dies
That’s all I want from you

Don’t let me down, oh show
me that you care
Remember when you give, you
also get your share
Don’t let me down, I have
no time to wait
Tomorrow might not come,
when dreamers dream too late

A little love that slowly
grows and grows
Not one that comes and goes
That’s all I want from you
A sunny day with hopes up
to the skies
Not one that comes and dies
That’s all I want from you

Don’t let me down, oh show
me that you care
Remember when you give, you
also get your share
Don’t let me down, I have
no time to wait
Tomorrow might not come,
when dreamers dream too late

A little love that slowly
grows and grows
Not one that comes and goes
That’s all I want from you

Nina Simone
Album: Baltimore
Song: A Little Love
Recorded; 1978

For those who do not know this song, Nina accompanies
herself on the piano. I believe it is on YouTube and I
need to learn how to pair my lyrics with video. My
head is an Ipod without speakers.
