The Next Rotation - The Universe of Fenris Fox

  Quote: "The Whisper in the Wind"
Although the song is not new, I still am moved whenever I hear "I'm Already There," by Lonestar. Very few songs are powerful enough to captivate me with a passing ear, on a cruddy radio - they usually have to make it to my headset. But, this one did.

It's no wonder, with lyrics like this:
"I'm already there...
...I'm the beat in your heart;
I'm the moonlight shining down;
I'm the whisper in the wind,
And I'll be there 'til the end..."
I don't know if Lonestar has a separate songwriter.. but if they do, I hope the guy got a raise after this.

I thought of another application of the imagery in the song, though: while the original is a love song, it could be modified to create an impressive poetic eulogy - at a funeral.

Some believe that when a furson dies, their spirit becomes one with nature; even those who believe in a "traditional" Heaven or afterlife (myself included), believe that the soul of the departed somehow "hangs around," in an ephemeral, intangible way - like being in two places at once.

If so, it would be comforting to think that they may be a small note, in the whisper of the wind.

(The same kind of comfort that the stars give to the Kings of Pride Rock.)
