Somethings Coming

Natalie Wood as Maria in West Side Story

Today’s Gratitude Burst was a Native American Saying that reminded me of how Gratitude and good things are always coming to us. We might not know what it is, or what to expect, but they are coming.

The Burst reminded me of the lyrics to the song from West Side Story, Somethings Coming. Tony, the male lead, gets a feeling that something is going to happen that day – he is not sure what – but he knows, something is coming. It is that night that he meets, and falls in love, with Maria.

These lyrics certainly apply to gratitude as well.



Somethings Coming

Could be
Who knows?
There’s something due any day
I will know right away
Soon as it shows

It may come cannonballin’ down through the sky
Gleam in its eye
Bright as a rose!
Who knows?

It’s only just out of reach
Down the block, on a beach
Under a tree

I got a feeling there’s a miracle due
Gonna come true
Coming to me
Could it be?
Yes it could
Something’s coming
Something good
If I can wait

Something’s coming I don’t know what it is
But it is
Gonna be great!

With a click
With a shock
Phone’ll jingle
Door’ll knock
Open the latch!

Something’s coming, don’t know when
But it’s soon
Catch the moon
One handed catch
Around the corner
Or whistling down the river
Come on – deliver
To me

Will it be? Yes it will
Maybe just by holding still
It’ll be there!

Come on, something, come on in
Don’t be shy
Meet a guy
Pull up a chair
The air is hummin’
And something great is coming
Who knows
It’s only just
Out of reach
Down the block, on a beach
Maybe tonight
Maybe tonight…

Be Well.
