Originally written and performed as a duet with my youngest son. He would sing a line, then I would, until the chorus, which I sang alone. Now I sing the whole song alone because he's off singing other things in the world now. Being a parent, it's all about raising a thinking independent individual, or it should be. I'm very proud to have accomplished at least some of that, with style. This heartfelt song describes my philosophy about how to let go and still remain connected. It's nice when life works out that way!

Lyrics

Daylight is fading away now.
Come here and sit by my side.
The wishing star is the first out.
It's always there in your eyes.
My amazing child
in between the dark and the light.
Breathing together
holding the moment
and when it's over
we'll be fine.
Deepening soft into twilight.
I feel you reach for my hand.
Flickering stars hear us whisper.
They number more than the sand.
My amazing child
in between the dark and the light.
Breathing together
holding the moment
and when it's over
we'll be fine.
Wish I may
Wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight.
Nothing is lost in the darkness.
Everything hidden is there.
Other things may come between us-
but I'll still be holding your hand.
My amazing child
in between the dark and the light.
Breathing together
holding the moment
and when it's over
we'll be fine.
