    This is a song written in response to, and inspired by, Matthew Shepard's death.
    It's called "What Matters" and it's such a beautiful song.
    My chrous (The New Hampshire Gay Men's Chorus) will be singing it this December as the closing song in our holiday concert.

    Check it out... What a beautiful message...

    WHAT MATTERS
    by Randi Driscoll

    You were the brightest angel
    heaven had ever seen
    you walked in with a story to tell and ten thousand tongues to scream and you said
    doesn't your heart beat the same as mine
    haven't I told you a thousand times
    isn't the air in my lungs the same air you breathe

    so who cares whose arms I'm all wrapped up in
    who cares whose eyes I see myself in
    who cares who I dream of
    who cares who I love.

    Heaven help me for I am lost
    what a price my love did cost
    but here I am standing strong and I am free
    and didn't we share the same sunrise and sleep in the same moonlight
    isn't the blood in my veins the same blood you bleed, so...

    when I die
    and they lay my body down
    the peace that I will find is the peace that brings you all around
    doesn't my mother cry like everyone
    my father grieve for his lonely son
    isn't my rainbow a little brighter because...

    so who cares whose arms I'm all wrapped up in
    who cares whose eyes I see myself in
    who cares who I dream of
    no it doesn't matter who I dream of
    'cause in the end it only matters that I was loved and am loved...

    love has no face.
