Don't Cry My Child

from by David Thompson



I went out, down the road one early morning
My spirit was surely breaking, and
I needed some time to pray
I heard the many angels breathing softly
The only ones to keep my steps
From crumbling on my way

I don't know how many hours I'd been wandering
But the flowers had bloomed when I came home
The sun high in the sky
And on the bed I found my dear beloved
She lay there still and expressionless
A daughter by her side

Don't cry, my child, your mother is only sleeping
The angels have come to wrap her
In a warm and peaceful dream
And if you find you're looking without seeing
Just close your eyes and drift away
To her pleasant memories

It was on a lonely night that I first met her
The darkness had been consuming me
Till her healing light broke through
But a thousand mirror fragments lay abandoned
For this heartless fate has taken her
Away from me so soon

So as I make my way down to the river
I hold my daughter's little hand
As she hums a warming song
This angel here reminds me of her mother
In the life that she pours into me
I've cherished for so long

Just close your eyes and drift away
There you'll find serenity.

Hello there! I'm David and I write music. I'm currently in a new band called Something Dear and we'll hopefully be doing some really cool things very soon.

Over the last three years I have been held hostage by my first solo album project. The good news is that I'm really finished with it this time*, and I'll be working hard on new things from here on.

Take care!
