Based on the prompt word "Impact" I wrote this song based on memories of my Mother who died when I was very young.

Verse I
She who gave life to me
She who gave breath to me
She sang just like a bird
A harsh tone never heard
And spoke the kindest words to me
Verse II
She who gave life to me
She grew me like a tree
My branches thick and long
My roots run deep and strong
For her I sing this song today
Pre chorus
I’d have given everything to have you here today
I’d have traded all away my earthly wares
Chorus
You perched me high on that tree so I could find you in the distance
Pulse thru my veins so I could feel you in a heartbeat
You drew your face on my face so I could see you in an instant
Verse III
She who gave life to me
She knew just who I’d be
My voice a crystal bell
Thoughts deep as a well
For stories I have yet to tell
Pre chorus
I’d have given anything to have you here today
I’d have traded all away my earthly wares
Chorus
You perched me high on that tree so I could see you in the distance
Pulse thru my veins so I could feel you in my heartbeat
Drew your face on my face so I would know you in my Winter
And you will sing me home 5x’s
Verse II and out
Oh She who gave life to me
She grew me like a tree
My branches thick and long
My roots run deep and strong
For her I sing this song, I sing this song.. today
