From the recording Songs of Understanding (2020)


giving from the heart
the place where we start
then lose our way,
caught in a spot
then led astray

but I don’t want to live from a place
where I can’t see my love all below,
up above
all around
in each sound
and each colour
and shape
and each breath
that I take

And so I will
Give from my heart and keep my way
and sit in my spot I’m here to stay

And you can
smile in relief as you know for sure
what I give is not something you need to return
in a way that takes joy from the giving I made
it’s all for you to enjoy
just to love it the same
as the gift you may give
to another some day
