about

merry christmas 2021. a few weeks back my amazing step mom, wanda, asked me to set a poem she had recently written to music. being the creative step son i am, i eagerly obliged... and when mom says jump, you say, 'how high?' this one is a little different for me as usually the lyrics and voice come last. was a fun way to work and we will be doing more. god bless to you and yours...

lyrics

My heart is breaking and I’m not sure why.
Is it because of the years gone by?

Or is it because of what might have been,
that is now silently blowing in the wind.

Yet there are many yesterdays to remember,
some of them harsh and some of them tender.

The happiest being the birth of each newborn,
the pleasure of watching them grow and transform.

Yet, my heart is breaking and I’m not sure why.
Is it because of the years gone by?

Or is it because of hard times shared,
or the best of times when we truly cared.

Each memory brings a life of its own,
to be planted, nurtured, and lovingly sown.

Hold on to those memories as long as you can,
as all too soon they will come to an end.

My heart is breaking and I’m not sure why.
Is it because of the years gone by?

Or is it because of what might have been,
that is now silently blowing in the wind.
