about

This song is most specifically about being in the room for the death of a family member - and the way my spirituality defines peace and passage.

lyrics

You're passing into light
I can see it in your breathing
and she is reading the words of your lover
they sound like a whisper

and your family is here
they are holding your hand
and they give you all the love
for which your soul will stand
beneath the cosmos.

and 8 billion galaxies
await your magnanimity
as you rest your eyes to them
and let go of the gravity


You will not be gone from here
a mere shapeshifter your mind becomes matter
and your spirit remains ever near
in the many chambers of my heart
you will not be departed.

There's a nebula in the heaven
that holds a place for your sigh
and the light that once resided in your eyes
may it travel with you
and keep you safe as you go home
you're going home

A door is open
with rays that pour in
to dissolve the darkness
of your mortal suffering
you step into the borders of transient existence
and thats met with audible resistance
to this and to the next appearance
i will see that familiar feeling
and i will miss you
in the time being
i will miss you.


You will not be gone from here
a mere shapeshifter your mind becomes matter
and your spirit remains ever near
in the many chambers of my heart
you will not be departed.
