The lakes are frozen, the days are dark,
the leaves are brown or gone
No sign of life 'though it's end of March
and spring was supposed to come
No one is singing
There's nowhere to play
after the cold came and took you away

Please stay and watch over me

It hurts to know that my hug and kiss goodbye arrived too late
They came your way, but escaped your cheek
because you could not wait
Your helpful hands are resting
Still I know in my heart:
You walk in front of me and spread light on my path

Please stay and watch over me

I grew up listening to artists that painted beautiful pictures with their words. Being Norwegian but having lived in Wellington, NZ, for many years, I challenged myself to write my own images in a language other than my first; signed up to a song writing course, and have never looked back. Thanks for visiting and listening. I hope my songs will mean something to you.
