Mother

about

Three years ago on this very day I wrote a song for someone very special in my life. At times she was my closest friend, others my sister, and when needed: my mother. Her name was Michal The Girl and three years ago she took to the sky, leaving her body behind to bring two beautiful little beings into the world. It’s uncommon these days to lose a loved one in childbirth and when it took her, it shook us to the core. It made many of us question our faith, united us in sorrow and love, and brought us Jackson and Reverie, her magical babies.

I wrote this song shortly after Michal passed.

I intended to re-record it to “perfection” and perhaps I still will, but this is raw like the spot in my heart that still aches for her. Acoustic and unpolished, it was written and recorded three years ago, then hidden away. I was afraid to let go, but it’s time to share her song with the world.

The song is called Mother.

lyrics

Mother I wake,
open my eyes,
it's no surprise
I look to the skies for you

Mother I know
if you were here
You'd wipe my tears
and wash all my fears away

Ooh
Ooh

Dear Mother,
when are you coming home?

Mother I sleep
I hear your voice singing to me
Like an angel in my dreams

Mother I smile,
It's been a while
But i still feel you
right there beside me

Ooh
Ooh

Dear Mother,
when are you coming home?
Mother, when are you comin home?

As I look up to the stars
I imagine that's where you are
And as I whisper things to you
I know you're coming home
Someday

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
