lyrics

SONG TO MY CHILDREN

You are my son
Your eyes are true
When you were young I held you
You held me too

You’ve been my friend
Who knew you’d grow
And offer up a man
For me to know

Children be wise, be strong, be driven
Open your eyes to what is hidden
Offer your tears like rain from heaven
Open your heart to what is given

And you, my girl
The feisty one
Who in my pain I prayed for
That you should come

I walked alone
the winter long
You brought me warmth and wonder
Somewhere to go

(Chorus)

And then came one
My smallest joy
Your brightness came unbidden
Just like the sun

Your spirit called
And so you flew
To earth and through our window
In dancing shoes

(Chorus)
