Without Words

This song is a reflection of the final words my mother left me before she passed away. A tender and loving reminder that our loved ones are never beyond our grasp. We simply have to learn to connect “Without Words”.

When you wish upon a star
makes no difference where you are
I’ll reach out to you, in ways that seem new
Trust your senses gaze into the stars…. I won’t be far

Seasons will come and they’ll go
No different from before
Except that we won’t speak through words anymore…..I’ll send the wind

Hear my voice in the falling leaves
let them caress your bro
A silent kiss from a butterfly
The rays of a rising sun
The soothing shade of a willow tree
to heal the pain…..Then I’ll send rain

Liquid pearls come falling down tapping a lullaby
My gift to you on this stormy night
to quench your thirsty heart
A womb of darkness sways you into sleep…. Where you can dream

Seasons will come and they’ll go
No different from before
Except that we won’t speak through words anymore

Silent seeds beneath the ground, cloaked by fallen snow
Awakened by the morning light
Just as the year before for they like you will bloom and dance……once more

When you wish upon a star makes no difference where you are
I’ll reach out to you, in ways that seem new
Trust your senses gaze into the stars…. I won’t be far

Little Girl

Every woman holds a younger version of herself deep within. A voice of truth and innocence, delicate, yet courageous and strong.  “Little Girl” calls us home to a place ‘where Ravens sing’ where we are free to embrace and celebrate the women we were meant to be.

A little girl sits waiting, generations whisked away
Longing to live the truth of her people and their ways
Stored tightly in the woman’s body with secrets of elders before
A girl with wisdom to share will be silenced no more

A little girl sits all alone in her forest chair. She holds the Spirit of the wind
Nothing to despair
She is confident and caring and sweetly sings along
With Nature and all living things healing with her song  

She waits for you where Ravens sing
In a place of green, she waits for you. She waits…. for you

How can she comfort and guide her, when only fear and pain reside?
A woman who sits in judgement and will only criticize
She claims that she is not able to heal or make good
and believes that her people will never be understood

She waits for you where Ravens sing
In a place of green, she waits for you. She waits…. for you

Anger turns to pain. Tied up in a world gone wrong
A chance for the little girl to heal the woman through her song

She waits for you where Ravens sing
In a place of green, she waits for you. She waits…. for you

A little girl sits all alone in her forest chair. She holds the Spirit of the wind
Nothing to despair
She is confident and caring and sweetly sings along
With Nature and all living things healing with her song  

She waits for you where Ravens sing
In a place of green, she waits for you. She waits…. for you

First Voice

In 2007, I made my very first recordings with my brother in his studio on the Sunshine Coast, BC Canada. While enjoying the natural wonders such a beautiful place offers, we were able to realize the birth of my very first set of recorded songs. I had since never publicly released them until now where I have made them available here for you to enjoy; it’s with pleasure that I am able to share the results of this process with you.
