Sinds kort schrijf ik liedjes.

Dit nummer heb ik geschreven in liefdevolle herinnering aan mijn oma. Ze overleed toen ik 16 was. Ze was een wijze vrouw met een koesterende liefde voor haar familie. Ze schilderde. Ze speelde orgel. Ze leerde me de liefde voor muziek. Ze had een heerlijke lach.

Bij dit nummer, Lady of the Moon, heb ik zelf de achtergrondmuziek ingespeeld, opgenomen en gemasterd.

Since a little while I am writing songs.

This song I wrote in loving rememberance of my grandmother. She died when I was 16. She was a wise woman with a nurturing love for her family. She painted. She played organ. She taught me the love for music. She had a great laugh.

With this song, Lady of the Moon, I myself played, recorded and mastered the backingtrack and recording.

 

Lyrics:

Lady of the Moon

 

Wisdom captured in a smile

glancing at me for a while

Distant guidance from above

Healer with eternal love

Moving seasoned cantabile

 

Lady of the Moon

Surrending scent of your perfume

Hands that sheltered my cocoon

Lady of the Moon

You wrote lyrics to my tune

but you danced away too soon

 

Soulfull creator of

a painting filled with only love

Step by step you guided me

nurturing my soul to be

blossoming from inside of

 

Lady of the Moon

Surrending scent of your perfume

Hands that sheltered my cocoon

Lady of the Moon

You wrote lyrics to my tune

but you danced away too soon

Organ playing with delight

Singing me a lullabye

Caressing laugher make my home

Embrace me when I feel alone

Beam me back into the night
