“We know that love is ALWAYS shining.” A favorite line from my song for Eva, “The Lime Tree” by Trevor Hall.
Rivers of tears have been shed as I listened to it with Eva safe inside and then in my arms. A memory that makes me smile is when Eva was still tube free, and I danced around the NICU room with her in my arms, finally having a chance to sing in solitude to my daughter.
Spark a match and watch the candle burn
The wick runs out and then love takes its turn
On fallen angels and broken sounds
We will last past the final round
It took a while for you to find me
But I was hiding in the lime tree
Above the city in the rain cloud
I poked a hole and watched it drain out
And parallel to the city streets
Our broken crowns beneath our feet
But as we walk across the diamonds
We know that love is always shining, yeah
So save me, love, save me all the time
I’ll wash you down with a simple sip of wine
And toast my glass to all my loved ones
To let them know that the stars, well, they still shine
