Acoustic

Position:
56 in Acoustic, 1434 overall

This song is about how a mother feels as her child grows up and goes on his or her own path. How a mother continues to think about her child and wishes for all good things. I have used some unusual metaphors here. The earth being the placing of a parents footsteps in the hope that her child will follow the good directions she sets. The ice is singing! I have many times heard this tonal events as the ice is forming on the northern lakes.the sound is an echoing hum, howl or song-like natural phenomenon.
Many times I took my children and we laid down on the ice under the stars and listened to her song. A mother hopes her song is ringing in the distance so her child will hear it and have comfort and remember her good advice.

Lyrics:
A MOTHERS WISH

Son, may your passage be a happy journey.
May your memory of me guide you through,
the dark and cloudy life...that shadows us all.
Please dont lose your way.
When you stop to listen,
hear the land speaking to you...to you.

Son, when you walk in the shadows,
look, my shadows there too.
Keep your memory of me bright and clear.
No dark and cloudy skies will hurt you at all.
You wont lose your way.
When you stop to listen,
hear the ice singing to you...to you.
Son, I know that your journey with me will end one day.
Walk along and please remember
...my wish for you is happiness
where ever you may go.
Im proud that you are strong.
When you stop to listen,
hear my voice whisper,
Ill miss you...Ill miss you...

Ill try not to worry.
